Not. Just a vanilla ATX 939 socket board, with reasonable performance,
no consumer cruft and as few movable parts as possible. The chassis is
4 U, so plenty of space there.

I have a X2100 with 4 GBytes and 2x250 SATA drives in a RAID 1,
running Sarge (debian amd64) and a kernel with vserver patches, not 
in the rack yet.

Very nice machine -- don't have the budget for another one, right now.
I figure 200-300 EUR budget should be enough for a motherboard and
an Athlon 64 CPU.

That's a good point -- my rack is reasonably shallow, and won't fit
say, a V20Z.
