Default Mobo upgrade

So im looking for a good motherboard thatll support a pentium d processor im not sure of the socket. Looking at my moms conputer i noticed that two caps on the motherboard are slighly popped up while it is still working i do want to replace it before it is too late. The reason im just looking for a motherboard is because i dont wanna do a complete custom build. Only requirements for the board are that it takes DDR2 ram. IDE connection is not required but highly wanted

What form factor do you need (ATX, micro atx, etc)? The motherboard needs to be able to fit in the case correctly

The Pentium D CPU does use socket 775, and you said you needed it to be able to use DDR2 RAM, as well as Micro ATX. Let me go look at some.

That's just crazy a new Micro ATX, Socket 775 and DDR2 goes new for around a $100 on amazon! Well, if I were you I would not buy one for that price...
