Maybe buy.com:


I would carefully check the mobo current requirements; you might get 
away with one of the tiny ones:


But it would be necessary to compare specs, startech web site says
     * +3.3(8A)
     * +5V(14A)
     * +12V(5.5A)
     * -12V(0.3A)
     * +5VSB(1A)

But the bottom line sometimes is you have to try it, since surge 
currents on startup can cause the supply to trip even though it can 
handle the steady load.
