You will find difficulty getting socket 478 motherboards, but they are about.
It's now mostly for socket 775.
However, I'VE had some gigabyte boards that gave good service, or, Asrock, and if you type those names into your brouser, you should find sites still selling them .

Yes, but the Asus has only AGP, so for pci-e you can only have the ECS motherboard. - I am sorry , but I do not know much about ECS, so I suggest you look for reviews on it, to see what is said about them - I will have a quick look, if I have time.
