I had a Gigabyte GA-G31-S2L (Not ES2L, but they're probably 99% similar). Those chipsets/boards are not that great, in general, for overclocking very far, but they are okay for the 800MHz FSB CPU like the one you have. I effortlessly got a Pentium Dual-core E2160 to 2.7GHz (it went up to 3.0GHz but I didn't stress test it and left it lower since it wasn't needed there). If this will be for the same CPU, I assume either of these will be okay/similar enough. They're all using similar chipsets. You may as well get one of the ones with the G41 chipset though since it's newer.

How did the board die, by the way? On mine, one of the SATA ports literally came off, yet the metal contacts stayed on. It has three or four SATA ports if I remember right, and I was only using one, but it's a cheap board, reflected by the price, for sure. Mine never had any faults/failures so far though. Now it's running a Core 2 Duo E8400 (no overclock).
