Default Need Help from the Nerds

Hye guys I know there'* some fellow computer nerds on here and I need your help. I'm "upgrading" my computer soon. Not really upgrading, just going micro-ATX and making it quieter. I'm in need of a Socket A Micro-ATX motherboard. You'd think those would be somewhat easy to find. However, it must have the mounting holes for my Zalman HSF that I have laying around. So what sites are good for shopping for computer parts? I've always used Newegg, but they only have one board that fits my criteria. I checked TigerDirect and Directron also. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

Thanks. Can't believe I forgot ZZF. I've been out of the hardware loop for a while. Neither of those had mobos that fit what I was looking for. If you think of anything else let me know.

Those two and the ones you've already mentioned are the only ones that I have purchased from, so I wouldn't be able to vouch for any place else...sorry.

Yeah, they have one board that works, so I'm pretty limited to that. That'* what I get for using aging technology. No point in upgrading since I get a laptop this summer. Sucks to have 300 dollars burning a hole in your pocket and nothing to do with it.

I've had great luck with Newegg and Zipzoomfly.

By the way, will a Zalman HSF fit in a mico ATX case? They're friggin huge.

also socket A is really hard to get new now cuz everything is socket 754 or 939 or 940 for AMD'*...

might want to spend a little and get a 939 64 3200.. you can get a motherboard and CPU for like $180 or so
