Which mobo are you trying to replace, can you give me a model name? Also which AMD CPU do you have and why would you want to trash it/sell it :) ? You'd rather buy Intel's dual or quad core processors?

the mobo is asua a8n5x had it about 1 1/2 yr the amd cpu is 3000+ 1.8 mhz every thing esle works the 768 mb of mem 160 gb hard drive and the 128 mb pci express video card all works finds just the mobo went out newegg has a foxconn mobo for 43.99 and tigedirect has a msi mobo for 49.99 that is as high as i want to go at this point so what you think kept it or dump it

Depends if you want to upgrade or not, I'd stick with the new socket 939 Mobo since it supports 64bit AMD processors. If this board supports and I presume it does, PCI-E slots and DDR2 memory than you don't have to think twice, stick with it. 50$ really isn't much for a new mobo, but then again choose a good manufacturer, don't buy something wild. Go with Asus, Gigabyte, DFI...
