Hi Everyone.:)
I'm new to the forums, but by no means new to Linux, having been a sysadmin on a unix system many many years ago..

However, I have very little knowledge of current hardware, and my Emachines system is ready for replacement, largely due to the mother boards condition, and I'm after some advice on what to replace it with.. ( and cheaply !!)

Emachines desktop with AMD Athlon 64 3500, 1.5Gb RAM & 320 Gb HDD, running Ubuntu 10.04.

Specifically I'm after a recommendation for a new motherboard with NO onboard graphics, preferably including a parallel port, and also a recommendation for a reasonable graphics card. Will probably get a new PSU as well, so if anyone has any thoughts on this bit, they will be gratefully received..

Thanks in advance
