    Question Motherboards with built in LCD controllers

    I was wondering if they supported any LCD, or specific LCDs, or how this all worked. Anyone have any info? Thanks.

    gizmomkr, when it says low-power pentium processor does that mean a laptop processor. There was the other board that said it just took a regular pentium processor, what is the difference? Thanks
    Got started with computers on this board early in high school...now I run a web development company and am about to build my dream machine.

    I *think* its refering to the CPU voltage requirements.... some use 2 to 3 volts..... others up to 5 volts.

    I used a standard p133 in my board.
    Took it out of an old desktop.

    The cables came in yesterday wooohooo.

    I was so excited. I had the board sitting on my desk for 2 weeks, all I could do was boot off a flopy and stare at the dos prompt.
    ( had no keyboard hook-up)

    I pluged it all in last night. everything works great.

    I loaded win98 on it, all the drivers autodetected except for the NIC. I found NIC drivers at www.realtek.com

    Its completely functional, and let me just say for annyone that was thinking of ordering connectors , and soldering there own cables. Its *WELL* worth the 100.00 I spent on the cable kit. the headers are TINY, and tons of pins, with no space between them. It would be verry hard to solder.

    To annyone else that got this board off ebay-
    I paid 37.00 for mine, lanner Inc. sells them for 450.00 I highly recomend the board to annyone looking.
