Well, for graphics, a GT 220 is essentially a faster version of the 9300/9400 boards. You could get this one for $50 AR (it was $45 last week). On the ATI side, you could get this one for $38 AR.
For motherboards, there are tons of decent options. Are you married to socket 775? Core setups are getting affordable, and there's also the new low power AMD chips to think about. With Black Friday around the corner, there are bound to be some decent combo deals available. With so many good options, it just doesn't seem worthwhile to pay a premium for a year old board.
