Sounds good... Here is one of my posts yesterday in a similar thread, for basically the SAME components... Note that Newegg doesn't ship outside the US right now, but it has all the model numbers, and give an idea of what prices SHOULD be... (I didn't edit that post, just coppied it directly).....

This would be PERFECT for what you want to do.... (yeah, it isn't Intel, but there is NO NEED to go intel, besides spending more money).

PC CHIPS M789CG - $55 - Mobo with integrated 2.0 Ghz CPU, onboard GPU, LAN & Sound... plus 2 PCI slots....
G.SKILL 512MB DDR400 - $35 - I know you don't want RAM, but this board uses DDR, not DDR2, not sure which type you have...
APEX TX-380 Micro ATX with 300W PSU - $40

Thats $130 before shipping... $95 if you truely don't need the RAM.

Also, Newegg has a major warehouse in NJ, so shipping to you in NY would likely take a day or two if thats where is is shipped out of. MOST of my parts come from there to Chicago in 3 days or less, sometimes from Kentucky.
