Hi all,

My  motherboard has died - I want to replace it.

This is my board
http://www.foxconnchannel.com/Product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?id=en-us0000002

Where can I buy one though? I am based in the UK and have tried all the companies Foxconn recommend/which sell their equipment, but no luck. Any suggestions?

If you only buy same board in order to use all current components, then it is hard and might be expensive. Fortunely, your system board is not too old based on specs from the link you gave:
- Intel® Pentium® 4, Celeron D processors, Socket T (LGA775)
- FSB 1066 / 800 MHz
- Dual channel DDR2 533/667 x4 DIMMs
- PCIe x16, 2 x PCIe x 1
- ATA x 3 + Serial ATAII x 4
- 7.1 channel Audio, HDA (Realtek)
- Dual GbE LAN (Broadcom)
- IEEE 1394a (Fire Wire)+
- 8 USB 2.0 ports
You better look for newer motherboard, not used ones. Expect for motherboard that uses DDR3 memory type and new CPU types (such as i7 or quad-core), you should be ok. Such board in the link below is ok:
