    I've looked at some 5200s, and it seems to get a fanless PCI 
combination new I'd have to spring for 100$. I don't usually get 
something off eBay unless its cost is a very small fraction of the new 
one. I'll go that route if I have to, but if anyone can swear by a 
cheaper solution, I'd really appreciate it. Again my needs are:
1. fanless
2. PCI
3. compatibility with 800MHz Celeron
