I would think that any asus socket a board would work with your back up disk but until you find one and try it you will never know. It might be that the backup disk would get it going and you could then download drivers for that board. Are you sure that the existing board has died and is unrecoverable? Sometimes other problems make a mobo appear dead.

it all started when installed a new graphics card ATI x1600 series 512mb, i caught the cpu fan with a screwdriver and broke one of the blades, installed a new one also new 500w psu then comp kept failing to start, ie restart from restart option was no problem, but shutting down it would not restart for about an hour so think done some serious board damage ???????

I would say not board damage but time for you to use the recovery disk and start from scratch.
