    My TiVo wrangling PC is acting up and I fear it's not long for this world.

    Need a board with at least one IDE controller and at least 2 SATA ports, that can run XP, even if not all that quickly.

    Should fit ATX case and ideally have a depth closer to 8" than to 9 or 10.

    (I've got an old tower case from the Slot 1 days when ATX was new and the slot instead of socket configuration meant boards were as wide as before but not very deep.)

    If there's a CPU and fan, and some RAM included, that would be a definite plus, and the I/O shield, manual, and driver disk would be appreciated as well.


    Onboard video wouldn't be objected to.

    I stopped using cases for my PC's and make my own tech benches to hold them. Nothing fancy but they help to keep things cool.


    It measures 9 1/2 by 14 inchs

    Very nice. I'm drooling.

    But I've got bunch of those 5.25" wide mobile rack things with the slide out drive holders, and a lack of bench space.

    Unfortunately, the older cases with 3 or 4 5.25" bays made in the early Slot 1 days of ATX aren't deep enough to keep them and boards deeper than 8"+ from trying to occupy the same space at the same time.
