Whatever price, as long as it runs dependably, and has future expansion possibilities, unlike my ECS K7S5A. Would like AGP 4x/8x, can handle a faster cpu, memory, and FSB, ATA133/100/66.

I've been looking at some Gigabytes as well. How about one of these, GA-7S748-L or GA-7VA

out of the 2 I'd go for the GA-7VA, but I like the FIC - KT-748 mainly because I like the fic mobo'* always have but thats just personal preference there

From what I see the two Gig'* are fairly similar, except the 7VA only has 333FSB, whereas the other will do 400 FSB>
