Hp m9517c replacement motherboard


After a few weeks of our desktop freezing up and attempting to rebooting itself it finally died and could no longer boot to teh O/S. The bios could no longer detect my drives. I took it to the computer shop who verified that the drives were working but the motherboard was defective. Being a nube I am having trouble finding a compatible motherboard since the original is far to expensive (Violet-GL8E). Could some please recommend a motherboard that will accept all the internal parts of the computer. The list of internal parts is as follows:
