Intel's latest ATOM motherboard has integrated the main North South Bridge chip 
on the CPU.  They then eliminated the fan with a large heatsink 

Up to 4Gb of RAM  2 SATA connections.

Dealer cost less than $90.00 at this time from Dartmouth warehouse.  Remember 
that includes DUAL core hyprethreaded processor and one on board NIC and 
integrated video.

And it has a 3 year warranty.

1 PCI slot and 1 PCIe slot

It makes a great Linux server.  I have used 2 or 3 of the previous generation 
board the D945GCLF2 with mirrored drives.  Small cheap and low power.
