I want to convert my current system from a full atx system to a micro atx system. Here is my current setup:

ASUS M2R32-MVP mobo
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
OCZ Platinum Revision 2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800
ATI Radeon X1950 PRO
One 500 GB Western Digital Caviar SATA II HDD
One DVD burner
Enermax 485 Watt PSU

If my theory is correct, all I need to do is get a micro ATX mobo that has socket AM2 and DDR2 800 memory standard, and a micro ATX case.

I know which case I want, This one.

I just need help picking out a mobo. Biostar has the best ratings on Newegg as far as micro ATX mobos go, but people I have talked to don't exactly speak too highly of them.

Any suggestions?

Thanks ahead of time!

I just got the biostar t series 780gm m2+ board and it rocks ! has built in memtest and super easy to run/oc..it also resets itself if you put in a bad setting !

People that don't like biostar usuallr remember them from the days when they made super budget cheap boards, but they make some solid higher end stuff w the t series !

super easy to set up, if it doesent boot the first cpl times ...don't worry, mine did that and reset itself and got it's bearings and boots fine now.
