I am needing to replace my mother board. I am currently running the Chaintech 9CJS Zenith with a Pentium 4 3.0 GHZ (Northwood) CPU. ATI Radeon 9800 pro video card, 1 Gig of DDR Ram. Onboard sound and network, SATA Raptor 36 Gig harddrive.

I built the system using the 2003 dream machine as a loose guideline.

It is primarily a gaming rig.

Any Suggestions?

If you're looking for another socket 478 board to stick your P4 in, the Asus P4P800 or P4C800 is a great board. I have the P4P800 Deluxe, and it's been really good for me. It's got good features, stable, and overclocks well. Here's the specs on the system I'm running on this board:
P4 2.8 Northwood overclocked to 3.4Ghz
1GB Geil PC4200 running 1:1 FSB
2x36GB Raptors in Raid 0
BFG 6800 OC (soon to be 6800 GT)
120 GB Seagate storage drive
Audigy 2 ZS soundcard
Onboard network connected through router to 3Mb/s cable :D We just got upgraded from 1.5

I have had absolutely no problems with this board, and would recommend it.

i would say abit or asus, but both of the abit maxII boards we have, both blew caps. one on one and four on the other, so i cant recommend them anymore. both came from different places 4 months apart.

I don't see why you "need" to replace the motherboard. It's got the same Intel chipset you're going to get in any of the other brands. no matter which one you choose. Features?, same thing you get in one you'll get in the other, except it's going to have its own name given by the manufacturer but eventually it will serve the same purposes that the other will or might have.
I'd say save save the cash. Unless the motherboard is faulty, I'd say get the ABIT "IC7-G MAXII ADVANCE" i875P Chipset Motherboard.
