  • Which Motherboard / CPU

    Ok,

    I'm just about to order an EPIA MII motherboard (probably the 1GHz as I can't find any where that has the 1.2GHz (mini-itx excluded).

    My PSU is an OPUS 90W. I need:

    - Small size
    - Low power usage
    - Low heat / low sensitivity to heat
    - Good spec etc.
    - Good price

    So, please tell me what you think, and ASAP as I want to order this evening.

    Thanks

    Ok.... so let's try again. Which EPIA Motherboard should I get? Is the MII 10000 the best?

      if you need CF and PCMCIA built in then yes MII is the best. If you don't need those things than a cheaper M 1ghz is the best.

      Hope that helps.

          Also for the same money you can go with athlon-M, a little more power requirements, but a lot more bang for the buck.

              Athlon XP-M is about 34 watt, motherboard with everything onboard is 30 watt +HDD +optical you may actually run into problems, so on second thought I retract my Athlon XP-M idea. If you want to risk it I would go with www.newegg.com.
