    Just get a cheap Socket 478 motherboard. I'm afraid I can't say where, because I'd be linking to competitors. :(

    stick an ASUS P4DV800D-X in it, you can get em for under £30 if you shop around & there AGP and PCI-E on the same mobo, so at a later date she can stick a PCI-E gfx card in if she can't find an agp card.

    Id stick with the Mobo she has and get a cheap Pentium instead!

    Even if the Mobo is broken, it will still be quicker! LOL

    Check out eebhay? Look for S478

    I wouldnt waste up to £50 for a Celeron based PC mate... I would consider getting a cheap-o Pentium and Mobo as its going to be an improvement over the Celeron.
