Motherboard recommendations

Anyone can recommend a motherboard with the following:

* Socket A (for AMD processor)
* Must have serial, parallel, and PS/2 ports
* No on-board video or sound card

I would get the ASUS A7V333. it does have built in sound however just turn it off. I am very happen with mine and I think it will be a nice stable motherboard for you.

If you want to look at it the Fry's off Northgate has it displayed so you can look it over- then buy it online to save the money

I'm doing some more research. Fortunately, I don't have to rush on this....

Tom's Hardware gave very high marks to the Gigabyte GA-7VRXP. Once again, it has a on-board sound, but it's a Creative CT5880 audio. Motherboards.org also gave the board high marks. ExHardware also gave it a good review. Tweaktown said the same thing. Any comments about this manufacturer?

What makes it annoying is that, unlike video card reviews, it's harder to find reviews for motherboards.

I also did some looking around. So far, I like one mid-size case that not only has enough drive bays, it also has a detachable door which is lockable and two additional fans in the back-a must.
