Good things do come in small packages. The K8M800-M7A Micro ATX board from Biostar is a great board to upgrade your older system. Since the back panel layout is one of the original standards you may not have to change the shield. You can use your old DDR memory and Socket 754 processor. The S3 UniChrome Pro IGP can be supplanted by an AGP 4X/8X card if you've got one.
All the usual items are included on the motherboard, 3 PCI slots, 6 USB ports (2 rear, 4 front header), 6 channel audio and Fast Ethernet. You can attach up to 4 PATA drives and 2 SATA drives. The SATA controller supports RAID 0 and 1.
Biostar once again offers great value for your motherboard dollar, with a board that'll help an older system along or provide a great base for an economical build. Take a look!
