  1. Want to build up a serviceable puter for the grandchildren, oldest 8 yrs. Want to use a regular ATX board and old Intel 820 Processor (Socket 775) that i already have. I will be installing 2005 Media Center edition. What is a good reliable MoBo for this application?

    Thanks, folks?

    If anyone has a fully accesorized used one, I'd entertain. By "accessorized", I mean cables, back panel bezel, the stuff that typically comes with a new boxed MoBo.

    What type of memory are you going to be using DDR or DDR2? Socket 775 you have a choice.

    Also, do you want AGP, PCIe or just integrated graphics?

    I have a PCI-express video card, that I forgopt to mention. I will need to buy memory. No particular preference.
