I had an E5200 spare CPU also, and was looking for a *cheap* LGA775 mATX motherboard a few months ago. I went with an
MSI G31TM-P21 - I got it for $42 off of newegg.
I didn't use mine for an HTPC, I used it in a larger case for my WHS.
It does fit your need (mostly) and has a PCI Express x16 slot for future vid card upgrades and two PCI slots for sound cards.. although I would have rathered a PCI Express x1 slot extra (or two)
I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
My System Specs
Intel i7 2600K
Corsair Vengeance 16GB 4X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9
