Consider using an Asus socket AM2 motherboard, as they support ECC.

A popular choice is the Asus M2N-E with 6 SATA connectors (not to be
confused with the M2N-E SLI), but any of the nforce 500-series Asus
motherboard should work fine with CentOS.

Modest AMD socket AM2 45watt dual cores are relatively cheap.
