Best AMD Mobo for ~$100
i know there are a lot of threads like this, but what is the best mobo i can get that supports a tbird 1.4ghz? onboard lan and usb 2.0 are preferred. nice colors (no green) are also preferred.

just out of curiosity...why the colors? for a case mod or for some other reason?

Gigabyte 7VAXP are nice the ultra is a bit more than one bill

SOLTEK SL-75DRV5 (purple) 133 (Can)
Drawbacks: no onboard lan, no 2.2 USB, but it's purple!The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time. -- Arthur Schopenhauer

Well if you want onboard lan, USB 2, and a different color, you won't get it for $100. At least, not and have a board that works good too. I'd say the closest you'll get to that is the Soyo Dragon KT400 Ultra Black Edition, which sells for $127 at Newegg. It meets all your specified requirements - onboard lan, USB 2.0, Black PCB, and has a few extras such as onboard RAID to boot.
Edit: and here's a link to the page at newegg you should be able to find it on: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...tby=14&order=1
