I was looking for suggestions regarding a new motherboard that i would like to replace with my damaged one. I dont have much knowledge about motherboards but I do now that I have an Intel Motherboard D845BGL/LABEBGSTD2, with a P4 1.6 Ghz processor., 256MB 266 DDR ram, 60GB 7200 rpm hard drive. Also it had 400MHz internal bus (im not sure bout FSB but could be 133Mhz) and a USB 1.1. This time i want to get a motherboard that has all the features of the above board but with a 533Mhz FSB and USB 2.0 (or any other feature that u find worth including). I was considering an Asus P4B533 (details below). But i am open for any suggestions. One more thing, are all P4 processors socket 478, if not then how do i know that my processor is a skt478. Would i have any problems with power and motherboard.
P4B533 Skt478 i845E 533MHz DDR266 Audio USB2.0 ATX
1. Supports Intel Pentium 4 socket 478 processors
Intel. i845E and ICH4 chipset
2. 3 DIMMS slots for up to 2GB of PC2100/PC1600 DDR SDRAM support
3. AGP 4X slot
4. 2 ATA100 supports up to 4 IDE devices
5. 6 USB 2.0 ports
6. 6 PCI slots
7. C-Media. CMI8738-MX 6-channel audio (optional)

I appreciate any recommendations for a good motherboard.
Thanks in advance.
