Looking for KT3 Ultra ARU motherboard!

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.msi-microstar (More info?)

My old desktop based on the KT3 Ultra-ARU motherboard just took a dump on
me. As I was powering it up I noticed a strong smell of burning. Shutting
it down quickly, I looked inside and a small capacitor next to the memory
modules is burned up. I am only going to use this desktop to load up Linux
and do school work on it, so a brand spanking new top-of-the-line
motherboard isn't needed, but I'd like to use the same motherboard.

So far, I've come up empty looking online for any. Does anyone know of any
good online stores that might carry this board? I know it's older now but
someone somewhere has to have some. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Dave

    Nevermind. I got a KT4 at my local CompUSA and it's working fine now. :-)

    Should have gone for a newer board that will offer upgrade potential.

    Nah, I was looking for cheap since it's not my primary desktop and just
    something I want to run Linux on.
