I'm looking for a cheap P3 motherboard:

The board must have at least 4 PCI slots (pref. 5) as well as an AGP slot. I'm looking to build a computer out of a 666mhz p3 processor I have sitting around the house. If possible, I'm looking to make this into a Windows 98 machine so that I can play all my old classic dos games on it, so I'd love the board to have built in sound, as well as DOS drivers for it. By the socket of the existing board I have (which is broken) it says PGA 370. Perhaps that'll help explain what kind of board I'm looking for?

I'm looking to spend under $20.

Thanks.

Good suggestion but unfortunately all they seem to have are the mini ATX boards. I'm looking for a full-sized one (at least 4 PCIs and 1 AGP).

Thanks, anyway!!

actually I'd love to spend only like 20 bucks or so.

After reconsidering, an AGP slot is all I really want, I guess 2 PCI's is enough...

That motherboard that someone mentioned, the CUBX or somrthin, is a AWESOME peice for $32, I am considdering it.... It's even got two ISA slots, and being that this is a computer I want to build for win98 for compatability with all my old hardware/software/dos games, having two ISA slots isnt a bad idea either!
