choices become seriously limited when you go with micro atx mobos... but there are some decent mobos out there in that form factor.. i would suggest the one in the link above... the reviews seem to be solid and i think it will accomodate some oc'ing as well .. good luck!

dont run too fast buddy, get decent 2500+ on Barton core, thats it.

and get Micro ATX board on nVidia N-Force Chipset. A7N8X (they came in 3-4 types), get the mATX version, best for gaming and performance.
