Cheapest Motherboard+CPU+Fan Deal?

I need to replace a motherboard, cpu (and fan) for a shuttle style PC. I have everything there (RAM, HDD, DVD, etc.) so I just need a cheap as possible replacement. Checked ebay, aria, ebuyer, etc.but just wondering if anyone knows of anything cheap going.

Special Requirements:
- Needs to be micro ATX
- Needs to support DDR2
- Would prefer a socket AM2 (see below)

The original CPU was an AMD Sepmpron 3400+ socket AM2 but I bent some of the pins and theres no guarantee I can sort it out.

Would appreciate any information, tips, etc.

Is it definately u-ATX you need? Most Shuttles used a flex-ATX (narrower and longer)...

Either way, might be worth considering moving to a DDR-3 system, depends on your budget (you might be able to sell your current DDR2?)

Seems to be a few at eBuyer also.

As Jah said above, if you can consider upgrading: AMD Hudson (integrated graphics and processor) M-ATX boards are now available, with USB 3.0 and Sata 6Gbps for about £100. Low power, quiet etc, just need to get some DDR3 memory which is pretty cheap at the moment.

Its not a shuttle brand. It just a shuttle-style PC. The connectors from the power supply are all the normal type (I checked the power supply connections with another PC).

Budget is very, very low.

Ebuyer This and This. Not the fastest out there but is faster than you have and cheap. There is a possibility of unlocking the cpu and/or overclocking it. Also you can use your DDR2 now and change to DDR3 in the future. Not bad for £55.36

Can anyone beat GAVINLEWISHUKD's price of £55.36?

Remember, its just the cheapest mobo + cpu deal (inc. delivery).
