looks real bad, might as well just accept pci-e video with your requirements

I have had good luck with MSI and Biostar both. I am currently running a Biostar board from newegg. My last build an AMD Athlon 64 used a MSI board don't recall the board number though it was a few years ago when the 64s first came out.
