Hi, I have a half dead HP a6000n here (been laying in the closet for couple months) and would like to replace the old damaged motherboard with a new one. I messed up something in the BIOS and damaged the computer. Never let me turn it back on running again.. Asked few experts and friends to fix it, they tried flashing it, and tried everything but most of them told me to just get a new comp, so I did. Now I want this old friend to get back running like it did a decade ago.. But the problem is I am not really an expert in computing. But I am comfortable in replacing hardwares and installing them. Just need to know which is the right one to get.

My Computer is HP a6000n
Motherboard: M2N68- LA
• AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 4200+
• 2.2GHz, 512KB+512KB L2 Cache
Power supply is ATX-300W
Integrated Graphic (I plan on installing a graphic card, so either a motherboard with integrated graphic or none would work)

The Processor is not damaged at all, so all I need is just a new motherboard that fits this computer and match the Processor and other hardwares.
The price range of the motherboard I am looking for is around $60-100..

here is the Motherboard Spec:

and here is the HP a6000n Spec:

Take your pick, I believe any of those will do...I would just go with the Foxconn (first one) because it's cheaper. For a replacement board, it should do nicely.

The majority of the boards listed support DDR2 533.
