Default Shuttle FN41 mobo replacement?

The FN41 motherboard for my Shuttle SN41G2 shorted-out and I have had difficulty finding a replacement compatible with my Athlon 2100. Should I keep looking or just upgrade to a newer one? If I need to upgrade, does anyone have a recommendation for a decent cheap barebones kit? Keep in mind, I am not into gaming and performance is of little importance to me - I'm basically just using my computer for the internet and word processing.

I'd appreciate any input, and I hope you don't find my lack of computer knowledge annoying.

Yeah, I've been looking on eBay, but I haven't found an FN41 yet... And that board is discontinued, so I am not sure how long I'd have to wait for someone to list one. And maybe it's cheaper to just buy a new one? I'd definitely appreciate barebones recommendations!

I don't care if it's a Shuttle or not. I am definitely not worried about performance either.

1)look on ebay again

2)are you in the uk,us or other

3)personaly if you want a normal desktop sized system i can reccomend dell or mesh.but personally if you want a desktop build your own , much cheaper and better flexability over components

4)also what is your price range

I live in the US.

Good to hear that a build is cheaper than buying pre-built!

Eh, I would like to build something less than $250 if possible.
