I have a Intel® Server Board S815EBM1 that is probably the root of an XP install issue (HDD controller) I'd like to replace it with a mobo with an agp expansion slot for as cheap as possible. I already have 512mb SDRAM so would like to use what I have before further spending.

I've been looking around the net trying to find something that will work but I'm running around in circles (no longer sold/confusing spec etc) as I don't fully understand mobo/processor compatibility.

This is what i think i need.

SDRAM DIMMS
Micro ATX
Intel Celeron, Pentium III
FC-PGA2 socket
AGP expansion slot

I have and 80 GB ATA 133 HDD and 3 SDRAM sticks (128, 128 and 256) and Im based in the UK.

Can anyone give me a link to a board that is available to replace the one I have (doesn't need to be a server board)? I'll do my best to supply any more info.

I found this one on ebay that looks about right. Will it be a suitable replacement?

Hi syco.
I think you understand what you're looking for.
The board you're looking at only has two memory slots though and will not ship with mainboard drivers either. You don't always need them but they're nice to have around just in case. You may also find them on HP's site, I didn't check.
You're also right about socket 370, getting scarce.
If money isn't too tight, you might want to consider one of the lower end mainboard\cpu bundles.
