for that board you will need to run 240pin DDR2 memory not the 184pin DDR memory. any reason for the micro ATX board, just curious. what is your price range? have you looked at this board. it support's both type's of memory plus AGP and PCI-E vid card's

I just built one for a budget rig a few weeks ago and went with this ASUS P5PE-VM ....http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16813131029

C2d support , AGP video and onboard video , and DDR400 support used a Pentium D 2.8ghz .....

 

i was completely surprised at how fast that system performed in overall apps and performance ( Not Gaming ) that i'm gonna pick up another to upgrade my oldest sons PC since he's not a Gamer either

I am looking for a motherboard under $75 that has PCI-Express(so i can upgrade to 8800GTX later) and that has core 2 duo/ pentium d/ celeron d support. It doesn't have to take my 184 pin memory I can upgrade that while I'm at it.

I wasn't even paying attention to the fact that it was a micro atx board...any suggestions under $75? For ddr2 mem and pci-e

Gotta agree with Paul442 here, go with nothing less than his suggestion and I'd add nothing less than the 965 chipset. Here's a couple other boards to look at:
