I have a socket A board with AGP8x which you can have for postage (or
nothing if you can pick it up in Perth).
It has a power issue where it won't turn off the cpu fan after you soft
power down - you have to turn it off at the psu. Would get you by till you
get something with pcie and sata (it's had a lot of CS:S played through
it).
Let me know if you want it () replace the hamburger
chain with my surname.
