I went with an Intel Based Asus last year to be better prepared for WM9 HD content, and have these components looking for a home. These, coupled with a Radeon card and Theatertek were my first HTPC system with my NEC projector, and served some duties as an audio editing machine:

Epox 8KHA+ Motherboard
Amd Socket A (Supports up to XP 2600+ 266fsb processor with most recent bios), VIA KT266A Chipset, Support for up to 1.5 GB of System memory, AGP 4X slot, 6 PCI slots, AC-97 Audio Codec, 3 184 pin DIMM sockets for DDR, CPU ratio and Front Side Bus speed set via BIOS- FSB can be set in 1 MHz increments- good overclocker, 4 channel USB (2 ports on a back-plate connector), etc, etc, etc. Has original box, manual and most of the accessories.
Avg Ebay Selling Price: $30 plus S&H
Note: Chipset cooling fan is dead and removed, but many other boards with same chipset released at same time had no fan, and many argued it was redundant. I have the fan if you would like to replace it.

PS: I have an offer to part it out, although if I have to split it up I would rather do:

Mobo/Proc/Fan/Heatsink: $60.00 shipped
2 stick Crucial DDR RAM: $60.00 shipped

I will only do this if I can find someone who wants each half.
