Shopping for motherboards

    Does anyone know of any decent motherboard comparison sites? I've spent
    many an hour googling at manufacturer's sites but really I could do with
    seeing the details side by side.

    The riddle I'm trying to solve is that I want a mobo that fits into a
    particular ATX case of mine (around 30cmx29cm of mobo space so extended
    ATX is unlikely to fit), that has at least one PCI-X 133 slot and costs
    the least amount of money, including processor (and possibly any OTT PSU
    it needs).

    I'm currently looking at a Supermicro Xeon board at around 280GBP
    (480US$), but I'd be happier if I could push that price down. I'm not
    too fussed about dual processor and such like.

    Any thoughts?

    I haven't paid more than US$100 for a motherboard in a long time.

    If fitting a particular case required spending an extra $380, I'd
    toss the case.
