  • Biostar NM70I-847 - What do you guys think?

    Hello Everyone, I've been looking into upgrading, its been long overdue (currently running an Epia M10K). Basically I'm looking for a low power consumption all in one mother board solution which is able to run music, videos, bluray, GPS, in RideRunner smoothly. I've stumbled upon this board which seems to cover all my needs, (just wish it had more USB ports)

    I plan on running it with;

    -Capacitive Touch Lilliput 669 HB
    -4 GB RAM (2 x 2GB)
    -USB GPS Dongle
    -USB External slim Bluray/DVD/CD player
    -USB Bluetooth
    -Maybe a USB hub

    All with an M3-ATX, (Would this power supply be enough?)

    Thank you all for your input!

    this board concerns me due to the low CPU speed.

    I would look into the Gigabyte GA-Z77N which is being utilized by a couple others in the forum. This motherboard has built in wifi, bluetooth, SATA 6Gb/s, and USB 3 ports, about as future proof as you can get.

    I realize you are looking for low power, but you should be able to spec a processor that will still allow the M3-ATX to work.

    4G of RAM is a bit overkill, 2G would be fine, but RAM is cheap, except in hibernation speeds.
