A lot of what you get will depend on what you're willing to spend on a motherboard. There are a lot of choices when given the criteria of only PCI-E and Intel P4 compatible. However, your dimensions show that you are looking at a mATX board and not a standard one. Is this from a SFF system? If so your list of choices will go down, but there are still some options.
