Default Need help finding a motherboard

I think that my motherboard has gone bad. I am going to try to buy a new one and need some help. This is the specs for my computer right now:

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Windsor 2.6GHz Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor

- MSI NX8400GS-TD256E GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card

- Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

- G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel

I need to find a relatively cheap motherboard as soon as possible.

I have a ATX Mid Tower case. Will this motherboard be a problem since it is a micro atx motherboard? If so, do you have any other suggestions?

No. Any motherboard smaller than the broken one will fit.

Some people have preference or asus or biostar. I prefer Gigabyte.

That didn't really make any sense. He's already GOT an uATX mobo so there's really nothing smaller than that. I think what you meant to say is that anything ATX or smaller (such as uATX) will fit since the OP said his case is an ATX midtower...therefore a standard ATX will fit.
