Need newer mobo &CPU to accept xFx Radeon 8x AGP 1gb gaming

ok, my GA-8PE667 Ultra 1.0 mobo apparently died, RIP. But I recently had bought an xFx Radeon 8x AGP 1 gb card and prior I bought 2 1gb 400 ddr ram. I would like to just buy an "older"/ newer mobo, on the real cheap of course,that can still accept this hardware, yeah I know I have to reinstall my xp windows (32bit). . Like maybe $150 for the mobo AND the chip - but I have no idea how to understand the mobo lingo. I have seen mobos for like $35 + $100++ for a VIA PT 880 chip, but what am I getting??
I see lists of CPU's attached to various mobos but I have no idea what to choose - is there some website that has a rating list?
All I want to do with this home rig is play World of Tanks with a decent fps 30-40 would work. What mobo specs should I be looking for? I know this is ass backwards finding a mobo to fit my video card, but I think it can be done. help?
