i am looking for a list of mother boards which are under $200 us dollars and can run 24x7x365 without failure.
i will be using it as a web server for hosting few websites.

two things i need in this board are
ECC Support
and Dual Lan Port

i will be running a ubuntu linux server

i will not be using it for overclocking and i will use any processor according to the motherboard because my sites do not want much computing power.

Please Help?

please note: i dont want to buy full fledged expensive servers but i want my low budget server to run 24x7 without errors and faults

Kabini CPUs supposedly support ECC. Socket AM1 / FS1b. They just came out. Motherboards are USD $35 to $60, CPUs are USD $40 to $60. The ASRock AM1 boards have all solid caps, should be reliable.

The one thing that they don't have, is dual gigabit ethernet ports. But with a single PCI-E x16 slot (x4 electrically), you should be able to drop in a multi-port Intel Gigabit server NIC.

The CPUs are quad-cores, the Sempron 3850 runs at 1.3Ghz, the Athlon 5350 runs at 2.05Ghz.
