    I built this PC in 1992 and it runs great and fast too. However, unfortunately, 2 of the 4 anchors for the Northbridge Controller 'Popped Out' the other day. I need to replace my old Asus P4PE-X motherboard. I can't find anyone with one to sell online, so what current MB can I just plug in my 2 GB memory, video card and 2.53 GB Intel P4 and go?

    Outdated by more than a few generations, hardly worth the effort imo, but here's my try...
    Your best off going with the ebay options. I'm sure there's gotto be someone out there who has this board for sale.
    Is this your board spec?
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard
    ASUS P4PE-X ATX Pentium 4 Motherboard

    Have you considered gluing the NB back on with an epoxy???
    You should look into that option as well, probably better than a whole new board
    that you may never find.

    Google: broken+epoxy+NorthBridge+asus
    Arctic Silver Alumina AATA-5G Thermal Adhesive
    Arctic Silver ACN-60ML (2-PC-SET) Thermal material Remover & Surface Purifier

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    I've got a P5PE-VM that's almost new, and needs a home. It was used for a day or two once, and that's it. I'll trade you something for it.

    It's got an LGA775 socket (P4), and can handle 2GB of DDR, AGP 8x, 3 PCI, 2 SATA and 8 USB. Manual, rear panel shield, and an IDE cable.
