I would suggest 1)Asus,2)Intel
I have used Asus and the board performs really good and the Tech Support is a plus

The two most widely used anti-virus products will get mixed reviews,between Norton's and McAfee,with Norton getting the nod depending on the system enviroment you plan on using the system in

You didn't state which kind of 1GHz processor. If you mean a Pentium III, Asus probably is your besy bet. I rarely rcommend an Intel motherboard. It has been my experience that they make a great chipset, but their motherboard production leaves a lot to be desired. An Intel chipset on an Asus board is the best combination.
If the 1GHz processor is an AMD Athlon, I'm very impressed with the MicroStar line. Their built-in POST tester saves a lot of time troubleshooting problems.
There are several choices for you when it comes to an Anti-Virus program. The major drawback with most of them is tat they will occupy much of your system's resources constantly running in the background. I have no real problems with Norton, McAfee, or even Protector Plus. My best advice is to only install the virus checking software and stay away from the add-ins that come with these programs. These extra features provided me with many repair jobs over the years. Make sure that you keep whatever virus software updated often. Good luck.

Go for a QDI synatix 2EP main board its got on board sound which can be disabled and are easy to install, no jumpers to set all bios controlled.

I have used QDI board for many years now and found them very reliable.

The above board is for Intel CPU's only.

If you are looking for an AMD Athlon/Duron board look at the Kinetix 7 from QDI

As far as virus software goes go for NORTAN 2001 very good for detecting email viruses and realy easy to keep up to date.
