fusion is great, a bit more expensive though.

as for sempron, its ok, you can even unlock lol. but its way to close to the next athlon dual core.

I finally pull the trigger for this one + an Athlon

Newegg.ca - MSI 760GM-P33 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

EDIT; I never give a D...about NewEgg feedback, but I like this one about this board

"
Pros: Cost was very low.
Able to handle my WHS setup without problem

eh, you already purchased - but yeah, a dual core CPU is all you need for a file server. I wouldn't worry about heatsinks and soforth on the motherboard, as you won't be overclocking or pushing the board at all.
I have an intel dual core 5200 underclocked on a cheap-assed MSI motherboard at home.

I would recommend grabbing an intel pro gigabit pcie adapter for the WHS. I'm not certain about the onboard Atheros adapter, but for performance reasons, i'd throw a separate adapter in the pcie lane.
