What's your budget?

farnell.com should have PLCC sockets and maybe even flash chips.
bios-repair.co.uk has flash chips, and maybe PLCC sockets.

For programmer it would probably be simplest to use another
mainboard which is compatible with flashrom.

Check which flash chip is in the system, if it's an SPI chip then
your best bet is to order the sockets from bios-repair.co.uk instead,
I haven't seen SO-8 sockets easily available anywhere else.
