    Willing to build a system by yourself?

    Well, sometime you'll have to. But giving us a budget makes it slightly easier to recommend components.

    Try this

    Get a Biostar 945GC-M4 this mobo has been developed to support a modern architecture,
    It has an 800MHz FSB,HD Audio,Lan,and this is the deal breaker for a 478 system a (PCI-E x16 slot and up to 4 GB DDR2-667 Ram) Keep all your " stuff " except the old ram.This board can support even the most high end graphics card.I can be ordered from newegg or from Biostars site for $59.99.This is the only way to turbo charge your old system.
