    Looking for a PIII All-In-One Mobo

    Hey I am looking for a all-in-one board that will support either a celeron 900Mhz or Celeron 766 that I have laying around, for relativly cheap. I really dont care about the video on the mobo, as I will be replacing it with an ATI 7500 PCI. Any suggestions?
    Requirements:
    Onboard SND, NIC, Video, USB
    1 PCI Slot for ATI Card
    Micro-ATX, FLex ATX, ITX style

    Thanks
    Steve

    My web browser here is flakey at best.. but I did a search for "video sound 370 micro atx" on pricewatch.com and got a few results you might want to check out. I think the ECS is your best bet.

    370 = socket370 which is the type of processor a pIII is

    No offence, but ECS support blows. I had one of their new mobo's and it had a problem. It was an all-in-one PIII mobo with both socket 370 and Slot 1. I emailed them a dozen times and called another 5-6 times with no responses.

    Not even the service manager returrned my calls. They did not get back to me. Finally after more than a month, I finally left a nasty voicemail and still no response.

    This new unused board site in a pile now $#!+.

    One that I personaly have had good luck with that is no longer made as of recent, but available still is the ASUS TUSI-m.
    I can't remember if it supports the slower speeds, but it does work well and their are versions with integrated audio, video and LAN.

    It's Micro ATX and is based on a single SiS chip.

    Just be sure you check out the supported CPU's and for the version that comes with LAN and Audio.

    Also, there is a 5 1/4 media bay called the iPanel deluxe that replicates several ports to the front plus status indicators.

    Just my thoughts...

    if you are looking for really good sound quality, don't use on-board sound.

    I said ECS only because out of the results I saw they were the most reputable.. I know that isn't saying much..

    I just realized though.. you said you want a pci slot for an ATI card.. why do you want onboard video?

    Sorry, didn't mean it to sound that way.

    Was sorta' jumping out to warm him.

    I think he meant all in one because he wanted integrated LAN and Audio. Since most AIO mobo's have video, it was probably just assumed it would already have it...

    Well the reason that I was looking for the onboard video and using the 7500 was that I know that I can get a 90 degree PCI slot adapter for the video card. The 7500 is a small profile card with TV out. The first part of this project will be to put it in my home stereo system as a multi-console system (ie. NES, SNES, N64 .... emulators) and I am looking to fit it into a low profile case. The case would be about the size of a home stereo cd player or dvd player. Would you happen to have a better suggestion for what to use? I wouldnt mind getting one of the EPIA's, but I am trying to put to use some of my left over hardware, like a few celerons, some extra SDRAM, and 20GB HD.

    Also thanks for the heads up on the ECS board.
