    Newegg has the Via V21G ATX Motherboard with BUILT-IN VIA C7 Processor
    soldered to the motherboard permanently. This is a 1.5 GHz CPU.

    Normal price is $70 plus $6 shipping, or $76 total.

    Tonight it appears that they have free shipping, which knocks $6 off the
    price, taking it down to $70. Normally their free shipping only lasts 1
    day, so I'm guessing the free shipping disappears tonight at midnight.

    They also just added a $10 rebate for the board, which takes it down
    another $10 to $60.

    If you happen to have signed up for the Paypal $15 back deal last month,
    and haven't used it yet (like me), you can use Paypal to pay for this board
    and get another $15 back automatically. This will take the final cost down
    from $60 to $45 total.

    Yep, you get the motherboard, CPU, onboard video, onboard LAN, onboard
    sound, etc. The board supports DDR2 memory, so if you already have a stick
    of that laying around, this could be a cheap upgrade for an old system. It
    also happens to have two hookups for IDE AND 2 for SATA on the board, so you
    could hook a lot of drives up to it and still have each be on its own cable.

    One of the best aspects of this board is that you can install it in a case
    using an old power supply. The motherboard draws a grand total of 50 Watts
    maximum, including the CPU.

    So, just $45 total to completely upgrade an older system, WITHOUT having
    to worry about the power supply being underpowered. In my case, I went from
    a 700 MHz CPU to 1.5 GHz, went from USB 1.1 to USB 2, and now can use DDR2
    memory. The onboard video is also almost guaranteed to be better than my 7
    year old TNT 2 32MB video card.
