    Yeah, 3 PCI riser sounds better. Geforce4 MX graphics, Audigy Sound, TV-Tuner.

    Snooch:

    Correct. The single PCI slot on the Mini-ITX boards are actually wired so that you can break them out into two seperate slots, but no more. This riser card has a PCI to PCI bridge on it that puts another PCI bus in the machine and the new bus has three PCI slots on it.

    AlienEclipse:

    Problem is they are still going the wrong direction for you.. away from the motherboard, not back over it. You'd still need a PCI extender to flip the thing over...

    Also, since this is over a PCI bridge, I'm not sure if the BIOS will like a video card in here.. Windows/Linux might be able to get it to recognize/work, but even still, your performance may suffer a bit.. You'd just have to try to be sure
