Fair point I guess if the 32/64-bit thing is an issue.

With respect to recovering stuff from the Scaleo - don't go for the parts I suggested, it was a very old motherboard a year ago and they'll be better alternatives now.

Better make sure you can take out the cpu too, it might be some silly laptop form factor one :)

Thanks - I've taken the (huge) heatsink off the Scaleo mobo, and it looks as if I should be able to pop out the CPU easily enough.

For new mobo, I'm planning to get the Asus P5Q-EM DO:

That costs about £90, so it's not the cheapest, but I won't be able to move my (AGP) graphics card across, and the integrated graphics should be good enough for what I'm doing.
