Any other pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Why would you want to just change the board?

Just curious. I see Fry's has a Biostar board with a e5200 cpu for $85 this week. 2G of DDR2 ram runs about $30. Just foods for thought.

How much ram do you have from the old MB ?

You may be much much better moving up than staying with the same CPU.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
