    Have an old PC use for back up.
    It has an FIC AD11 MB and I would like to replace it with a better more up to date IDE MB.
    Do not want to have to change all the IDE drives.
    Is there any site that can be trusted to find a New board?

    AD11- FIC
    Is this it?

    IDE is dying out, you will not get, or likely not see more than 1 IDE on any new board as most new boards have
    transitioned away from the slower IDE, to SATA.

    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.

    EVGA GTX980, Seasonic PLATINUM-1000W PSU, MountainMods U2-UFO Case, and 7 other internal drives.

    I have always used ASUS mother boards with good results.

    But, a lot of research is needed. I know it was for me before I settled on the right MB.

    If it's a backup machine it doesn't need a new mobo. Any old junk will drive the disks and network card faster than your machines can throw data at it, unless you are on a gigabit network. A 100Mbit network running flat out only moves about 10MByte of data per second (600MB/minute).

    cheers, Paul

    ASUS as well, I just assembled one with an IDE port and support for USB 3.0; best of both worlds, legacy and modern.

    If you need more IDE ports you can look into a PCI IDE controller card as well.
