whats the rest of your setup that your concerned with? micro is typically smaller with not as many expansions as a full atx most of the time its really price that separates it with the big boys. I've had two micros and have been fine. this boards got 4 sata, 1 fdd, 1 ide and 4 usb. you can keep looking around i just tried to find something that will be usable with a lower cost so you could go more on the vid card with in the price range. i was just having the same problem upgrading mine within 200 also but i got bumped up to 300 since i needed a new processor too!
