i went with a pc chips m851g (flex-ATX)
worked fine for me except the onboard sound card doesn't work
just bear in mind that pc-chips are notoriously rubbish boards
for $65 shipped ..
it's slightly larger than the via mini ITX boards, but seems to be much cheaper for the features, I'm planning on making matching systems.. one for my wife and I .. I have been using normal comodity hardware, but the power requirements have killed my M1-ATX finally, so I want to go a more power effecient route, and cheap.
what I'm wondering: What does anyone know about possable performance issues.. or any issues I should be aware of.
thanks in advance!
i bought it off ebay so no replacemenet for me, i've got no idea whether it was just my board or not
it seems to run fine
is that 6 ports using header pins off of the motherboard?
cos i didn't get a header card and tried using a different one and proceeded to fry my gps receiver
i got the same board as well, today i just fixed it, and can play divx without any choppy..
