  • Small Motherboard?

    Hi I have a case that is about 220x140x45mm big and I need to find a motherboard that I can fit inside along with the a laptop hard drive(maybe) and a laptop disc drive (again maybe). I know about the nano and pico itx, but both boards are a bit under powered and a hard to get a hold of for a decent price.

    Now I was told that they make various types of motherboards and everything in different shapes and sizes. Can anyone link me to a motherboard that will fit in a 220x140x45mm case? (eBay is Preferred)

    I found this nano itx, but I feel I can get something with a little more power but still fit in my case.

    I don't know on the price but I know there are some Atom SBC boards on the market now.

        mini-itx won't fit in the dimensions he has provided guys. 220x140mm, mini-itx is 170x170mm.

          Here's a nano with an intel atom 1.1ghz... expensive though.

            I believe the Atom boards are MINI-Itx though correct?

            I wish I could buy that, but it doesn't look like a mini-itx will fit in the case I have.

            Yea thanks for clearing that up. I was hoping that they would make a different type of mini-itx or something. (something shaped like a graphic card) As I have the length for a mini-itx, its just the width that is holding me up.

            Dam, that is a lot more than what I was willing to spend. If it comes down to it, I rather upgrade the case then spend that much on the board alone.


            Thanks for the help guys, anyone else?

                  But you won't get fast and small for cheap, anywhere.

                    By fast I mean something that will be good in my car to play movies, music, listen to radio/xmradio and just do things a car pc is suppose to do without any hiccups, such as freezing or extreme lag.

                    What do you guys think about this system?

                      Wait for the nVidia ION platform coming Q2 '09.

                      Should be around $100 give or take but nothing is set in stone yet.

                        Yeah I'v heard the price is going to be down there in the non-expensive area. That's a good idea.

                          That looks perfect, buts kind of hard to believe that for around 100$, I will get a full motherboard with cpu and be that small, but I guess I will what and see.

                          Is there a more specific release date?

                            from what i seen and read, it stated in articles that its 50 to 100 on top of the mobo's now... so your looking at near 200 for a mobo with cpu but prob will drop to 150-185 i would guess... but i could be wrong

                              Actually I believe that would be on top of what you would pay for the entire computer. I.e. If a netbook costs $300 you can expect to pay $350 to $400 for the netbook. I think this is leading people to believe the cost would be $50 to $100. Me personally I feel it would be in the $150 to $200 range. Time will tell though.
