Hi, I was wondering of anyone knew of a comparable board that I could replace this one with using the same hardware. My hard drive, and DVD drive, are both IDE. I am using 3 MB in the 4 slots, My video card is AGP, and I need it to be ATX form factor to fit in my case. I have also installed a 3.0 GHZ Intel processor using the 800 FSB. Any help to keep the ol puter running instead of building a new one right now would be appreciated.

If I'm not mistaken that is a Socket 478 motherboard.

Socket 478 is getting kind of long in the tooth.
To get a replacement you'll probably have to take your chances with a site like ebay.

WOW !
THe Ic7-g is apparently highly collectable or made of gold.
2 listed on ebay [USA]
1 for $99.99 & "as is" [as is means junk that doesn't work right to me]

The other for $148. gauranteed.

I would be looking for something I could use the stuff on & let it ride.
OCZ StealthXstream 700W,Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R , E8500, Arctic Freezer Pro 7, 3GB G.Skill PC8500,Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 OC [1GB ], Seagate 250GB SATA II X2 in RAID 0, Samsung SATA DVD burner.

I have this exact motherboard. It performs awesome, only problem is you will have to upgrade your video when money allows (the onboard is sufficent for general use). And upgrade to DDR2 memory, but it will keep your p4 running for a few more years with the perks of PCI-E video and faster memory.
