This is not Microsoft's fault or Windows Vista/7 fault in any way. It is NVidia that decided to move your chipset to legacy standing a long time ago.

Hi.

No, I don't usually make hardware recommendations to purchase unless someone specifically comes to me asking if a specific model of something can be used. I'm not going to go and pick something out for you.

Any motherboard for sale that you can find in a normal reputable store (not like a thrift shop or barter shop etc...) will run Windows 7. I suggest looking at newegg.com or tigerdirect.com

If you want to reuse the other hardware you have now, like ram, psu, cpu etc...get a board that is compatible with all them. General advice is to get something by Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Intel. ECS (Elitegroup) and PCChips make cheaper, but still good, boards.

Going by the fact that there seems to at least be Vista drivers for it's VT8237 chipset, I'd say sure, it will work.
