I am looking for an HP Compaq Asus Motherboard M2N68-LA NARRA3 5189-1661. I have looked around and they were all sold out. Does anyone have an idea where I could find this besides ebay? I would like to buy it at a legit store or is it okay to use a different motherboard?

What are my options if I can't get the same exact board replacement? As far as using other motherboards. Hp told me I couldn't use the same recovery disks if using different motherboard but the pc should work anyways right?

My specs are below so if someone could recommend a motherboard from tigerdirect that would fit it would be great thanks(pc is factory built so not sure if that means i must use only theirs.

Trying to use a case from HP or Dell with a new motherboard can be difficult. It would be best to the the original board. I see this board on eBay - it looks to be new and has a 14 day warranty.

Good Luck
