I bought a nice little microatx case for my pIII 500 system - but the system does not seem to want to work now - so i figure forget it, not going to get a head ache over this so am going to give the board / cpu to a friend.

now, this system will become a media center so a mbo with 5.1 + sound and preferably an AGp 8x slot would be nice..

how does this look (from newegg, this is if my first order actually works and comes through - due to my location)

(i do want to O/C hence why i took the mobile - also becuse of the low wattage it uses.
