Update... comes out now the Athlon i wanted is discontinuted. Anyways, i switch to intel. It would make my htpc more future proof with lga775, which will allow me to bring my e8500 on it when i decide to upgrade my main rig.

Now going with this ASUS board - Buy ASUS P5G41C-M LGA775 DDR2 DDR3 G41 mATX PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI HDMI VGA SATA2 GBLAN Motherboard - P5G41C-M In Canada.
with an Intel e5300.

Also added this cheap wireless keyboard and mice combo - Buy Logitech MK300 Wireless Combo Keyboard & Mouse Optical USB - 920-000920 In Canada.

Will get more fancy stuff when money starts coming in.

Gives a grand total of 250$

Not bad, ordered
