Sounds nice. I think with that TV you should be using component video instead of S-video, the picture quality is much much better. The video card should come with a small breakout cable that has the three component plugs and an S-video plug on it. Or you could just run it via HDMI or, if the TV doesn't have digital inputs, a DVI to VGA adapter. Experiment with what you have.

Another thing, analog TV-out is locked at 50 or 60Hz so I'm not sure if a 100Hz refresh rate on the TV will do any good. It would be better to use VGA or DVI/HDMI so that you can set the video card refresh rate to 100Hz as well. And then you can enable triple buffering in MAME to get smoother scrolling - some arcade games run at odd refresh rates so triple buffering really helps to smooth things out, but it only works well if the monitor refresh rate is above 60Hz.

It's important to use a motherboard that works in harmony with your other components and doesn't create any bottlenecks. Though it's not as important if it's only going to run MAME. You don't need Firewire, bluetooth, TPM module, SLI support, WiFi, dual LAN, 12 SATA ports, 6 PCI/PCI-E slots, 4 memory slots etc etc. Get something simple (maybe micro-ATX) with Intel chipset, that can run the CPU (a fast Core i7) and 2x2GB DDR3 at their max rated FSB. Don't spend money on super expensive low latency RAM, it's not important for MAME. And the mobo and CPU don't have to be Ivy or even Sandy Bridge, stay one or two generations behind and save some money.. which you can then donate to the dumping project

Good luck, I hope someone can recommend a nice motherboard for you. Let us know how it goes.
