    Anyone seen a Microatx PCIe socket 754 mb?

    I've looked for one, but ASUS is the only one that I could find.

    They make a MicroATX Socket 754 motherboard with a PCIe x1 slot that uses a SIS 760GX chipset - but I want to put a radeon x300 card in my system (which is PC Express X16). Considering I am going with a low profile case, and with reviews that have been seeing - the Radeon x300 blows away the Radeon 9600SE and it costs about the same amount of money.

    I would like a decent end card to play Winamp visualizations when I am playing mp3's in the car. I would also like the "wow" factor when it's possible for me to play Call of Duty or Doom 3 on a carpc lol.

    PowerColor makes a 128 bit X300 in a low profile PCI Express slot form factor.

    The Radeon 9600SE kinda sucks though. And I really don't want to go full atx. ASUS and EPOX make an nForce 4fx board with PCIe, but it's only available in full atx. Damn - that in MicroATX would be pimp.

    Why not go Socket 939? It's expensive as hell - I have a Socket 939 setup in my desktop system though - fast as hell. You can buy Socket 939 Athlon64 boards in PCIe with a microatx factor right now - but not in Socket 754.

    I bought a AMD Sempron 3100+ for $50 from CompUSA open box. Works fine, I tested it.

    Asus K8S-MX? Hey, that's what I got: PCI x 2 + PCIe x 1 + AGP x 8, sounds like the best of both worlds

    What do you know, they make these aplenty: PCI Express (PCI-X) Extenders and Riser Cards

    Found a solution

    I'm going to go with a JetWay A200GDMS Pro. This board has an intergrated 32mb DDR video ram chip setup with an intergrated Radeon x300. More than acceptable for games and visulizations. From reviews I've read you can even play games like FarCry without problems at medium quality.

    The onboard audio controller is a hardware based Realtek 8 channel with a 100 db s/n ratio @3.5v RMS output. This is better specs than the Sound Blaster Live 7.1 sound card I was considering and almost as good as an Audigy 2 Zs.

    And if I really want to I can get a PCI Express card for this motherboard if I want to at a later date.

    Board specs can be viewed here. http://www.jetwaycomputer.com/spec/A200GDMS-PRO-OC1.pdf

    so here we go:

    AMD Sempron 3100+ 90mm Socket 754 cpu
    Stock CPU heatsink
    JetWay A200GDMS Pro motherboard or equilevent Radeon Xpress 200 sk 754
    1GB Kingmax DDR-400 SD-RAM cas 2.5
    IN-Win BT series black low profile slim microatx case w/ 180w microatx case
    CarPC store EZ shutdown controller
    Seagate 3.5" 7,200 rpm sERIAL ata HARD DRIVE
    AOpen combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive
    Vantec 3.5" bay 4 channel fan controller
    Hawking technology low profile 802.11G pci network card
    Hawking Technology hi gain 6dbi omni directional antenna

    mmmm..... fast....cheap....

    For a carpc, I really don't need a dedicated video card. X300 intergrated should be fine.

    I e-mailed JetWay. The board ships in early May and will have an MSRP around $100. Newegg and zipzoomfly will be carrying it.

    I will be buying one as soon as it is released.
