Hi, I have a question about finding a replacing a motherboard for an HP DV6105US laptop. I need a replacement mother board for my friends laptop. He has a DV6105US, Part No: RG253UA. I put that part number in HP’s partsurfer web page (http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=RG253UA) and it says the original motherboard is part number 431363-001 but it is no longer available for purchase so it says to order part number 443776-001 as a replacement.

Now I found a real good deal on a different motherboard, the part number is 433280-001 I can get a brand new one for around $43 (including shipping) from ebay. I went to a few websites (http://www.getpartsonline.com/433280-001.html is one of the sites), and they say the board is compatible with that model. So I was wondering what the difference is between this part number (433280-001) and the recommended part number (443776-001). I know sometimes the DV6000 series laptops overheat, so would the 433280-001 be more susceptible to this issue since it is not the suggested part number to use (although its compatible)?
