    VIA's boards and upcoming boards

    I am doin some research on what board i want for my carpc and was wantin some little help with the experienced users here.

    I was lookin at the EPIA-EN boards, EPIA-CN boards and the new Nano EPIA-NL boards.

    Now, from what i gathered-
    CN uses the new C7 chip offering a max of 1.3ghz and faster memory.
    EN uses the C7 chip with a max of 1.5ghz
    NL nano uses Corefusion with a max of 1.0ghz

    The NL is over $300 easy, CN mid $200, EN just under $200.

    If taking for granted all 3 boards would be running 1gb of it's fastest compatible memory stick, would i still be ok just running the EPIA-CN board for mainly music\video and emulators?

    I just recently read somewhere else that Gigabyte was about to come out with their own Mini-ITX board but specs are kinda unknown...I'm waitin for a response back from them to see what the specs are and all that.

    And correct me if I am wrong but out of the CN and EN board, isn't the CN board the fanless design ONLY out of the 2?

    I will recommend the EN boards. The performace of the C7 1.5 in my opinon performs better than a pentium M 1.73.
    Opus case. MB 899 core duo 2.0ghz
    Dual vga out, 400 gb hard drive, Centrefuse front end

    which one of these boards are fanless?

    Also, Gigabyte will be releasing their Mini-ITX at the end of September. IT is suppose to be a C7 2.0GHz
