    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.

    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?

    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?
