    You need a socket A motherboard; there are still plenty available but you need one that is compatible with the rest of you grandads pc.
    So it would help if you can post the make/model of the failed mobo along with the memory type/speed and the graphics card make/model.
    NB the graphics maybe on-board the mobo.
    With this info I should be able to recommend some inexpensive options
