Funeral for a Motherboard

The motherboard in my desktop decided to join the "Great Computer" by dying on me last week. Thankfully I didn't loose any files as it died in its sleep and wouldn't wake up the next morning.

I'm now back up and running though I needed to get a new motherboard along with an OEM copy of Windows and now have to talk to MS about activating my copy of Office - I refuse to spend $400 for a new copy when what I have still works. The only reason it's giving me fits is the change in Windows Activation Key.
