I like the D201GLY2 motherboard - it isn't the fastest or "greenest" MB out there, but at about $70-75, it is a great value for a small little box. The latest version has two SATA ports and an IDE port, is fan-less, and can take up to two Gigs of DDR2 RAM (single DIMM).[0]

It might fit in your lunchbox chassis, and two SATA drives would afford you a lot of storage.

Just a thought,
