    Nearly there for the motherboard!


    Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H, NF 630i, S 775, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, VGA, uATX £39.39 £46.28

    or this....

    Asus P5K-VM iG33, S775, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 1066/800/667, SATA II, uATX, On Board VGA £52.40 £61.57

    Just a mild overclock maybe. Well the Gigabyte is cheaper, both are quad core ready, IGP, Firewire.

    Any benefit of the Asus?

    Re: Nearly there for the motherboard!

    Do you require integrated graphics and a µATX board?

    If not to both then Gigabyte off 2 P31 chipset boards which may present better value for money.

    If you do need those traits then perhaps this Gogabyte G33 board, I have the DS2R and it clocks my E6550 to 2.8GHz at stock everything would guess the S2 has a similar feature set/bios (less SATA ports though).

    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    Oh and if integrated graphics is important don't forget you can get basic graphics card for less than £30 which would do a lot better at anything graphical compared to integrated graphics.
