Thanks for the tips.
I'd give trying to solder the pieces on a shance if my soldering skills were a little better than my dog's...he isn't so good at it either. I had to solder a board for a class a year ago, and it took like 7 hrs and resembled the work of an autistic child :(
I may end up soldering it though, getting that socket off will be a pain in the ass, as there is some sort of tape like stuff covering the back of the board right there, and I'm pretty sure the "Yank the Bitch Off" method will only worsen my problem.
Thanks for digikey and mouser though. I'll give them a look see.
