Default Micro-ATX w/PCI-Express

Looking for the best Micro-ATX MoBo with at least 1 PCI-Express slot. I've scoured newegg and came up with only a few reasonable ones. My current rig doesn't have a floppy drive, so unless I can get the boot drivers off a CD, I'm SoL. Also has to be Socket T (LGA775).

I'm trying to replace the MoBo in my current pavillion a844n, and just realized that my current MoBo is micro-ATX. ( http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00300046 )

I know the difference between Micro and regular ATX. Does it mean that I *have* to use the Micro-ATX MoBo if my original MoBo was? Or was HP trying to save money by using the Micro?

Those are the system specs, but I can't find case size.

Thanks.

Does the case have room for a ATX board? If it has the room, you can probabaly use one.
