    Micro Atx MB

    Hi All, a few quick questions, hopefully i'll get some come back and advice.

    I'm building a new car pc and have decided to go for Micro Atx MB as to Mini Itx as i want more power, i'll also be removing it from the car in around a year.

    I'll be powering it with a Opus 150. It wont be used for anything other than dvd, gps, mp3, i know a via would do me but never had any experiance with them so i'd rather stick with a intel pro.

    I'd like to know is the a most commonly used Micro ATX board that everyone tends to go for, for example if i was going for a Micro i would most prob go for a 1200 or the new 1300. I just cant seem to find a suggested model for Micro ATX.

    Thanks Guys.

    Asus are pretty popular. I'm using a Chaintech. Just search around on newegg.com and find one that has all the right ports and specs for your needs.
    Spent so far: $1,755

    Depending on what your looking for exactly, the MS-6714 is cheap and has onboard lan (10/100) onboard AC '97 5.1 audio, and decent onboard video.
    REBUILDING!!

    Thanks Guys,

    How about these

    G945GTP Micro ATX
    http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/tp/

    G945GCZ Micro BTX
    http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/cz/

    The on board sound seems to be pritty good, not sure what the BTX is, looking into it right now.

    Do you think the Opus will be able to power these.

    Thanks

    i've just bought a DFI 855GME-MGF Pentium M microATX mobo for my new carpc... you can get Celeron M chips pretty cheap. high performance, low power. not the cheapest solution though...

    should easily be powered by an opus 150. theres quite a few people with AOPEN pentium M mobos running off the opus 150.

    mATX w/IGP2 + AMD Mobile XP + a stick of ram = best bang for buck, about $200ish
    Get the OPUS PSU and save a headache aswell, another $150.
