    For a lot of people in the world, just being ok isn't good enough.

    For someone who is perfectly willing to spend $1000 on a Lynx sound card, that mentality doesn't fly. Just the same as it wouldn't fly for me.

    If he has a need for a PCI card, then he has a need. Trying to get him to change those needs doesn't do anything to help him in his quest....though, he could help himself by simply looking through the available solutions out there...
    kino 9452 has a standard pci slot and runs core duo socket m processors. video is great.

    better?
    My opinion is my own.

    Jan - you nailed it on the head - I need this PCI so it hinges my requirments for a MB and a case although I guess I could have a case made and my need to run SRC and FIR convolvers with 65000 points calls in for a good CPU, new VIA Neo beeing right on the edge.

    I don't run a case, but that also causes a problem when considering a PCI card...while a bracket can be made, I don't have the height available for it.

    That might be another option for you to consider. At that point, air flow is much better. The down side is that you have to fabricate something to hold everything....which isn't that big of a deal for some.

    Try this.

    MSI Industrial GM45 Core 2 Duo Mobile Mini-ITX Mainboard
    http://www.logicsupply.com/products/ms_9818

    It has everything you want, great video capabilities, and can hold up to 4gb RAM (laptop RAM it looks like).

    Next time you have specific requirements, you might want to list that requirement and not a brand name. As for a case, I would suggest a right hand riser and case for better airflow and heat control. The C137 is the only one I know personally, but it does have a place for an M2-ATX (handle most setups) unless you have more requirements that I am not aware of. I never suggested you switch to "OK" audio. I had no idea what a Lynx board was.
    My opinion is my own.

    I'm going to see if Travla C138 case would fit in my double DIn on top of the screen - that might be an ultimate solution for a form factor

    As for the case, just keep in mind lots of stuff sticks out the back, so while it may appear to fit, you stick a serial plug or a big usb plug and suddenly, you're out of room. Also, when you put a lot of heat generating equipment in a small space (stacking them basically, also blocking airflow), you might be asking for heat trouble.

    I do like that board. Seems really versatile too.

    Yep - have to look in all of that and good ventilation. Hopefuly this board + mobile CPU are not generating lots of heat. But in ever case I just realised what I need to have my case to be in the trunk right next to my processor
