These mini-itx Zotac boards are really attractive. I've had my eye on the z68 version too.
Now you're just mashing it!
Sounds great, especially since many of these ITX boards only take SODIMMs. My only question would be how much? But one of these could make for a great little gaming rig, at least if youre working at low resolutions.
These little boards sure do pack a punch nowadays, not much missing at all.
I just put together an Intel mini-ITX machine using a Zotac H67 board. I was pretty impressed. Plenty of features (WiFi for one) and good for the price. I'd definitely do another ITX build with one of these. Probably on a Intel platform though.
Pretty sweet little board. I would love to build an HTPC out of one of these things.
The A8 on a socket FM1 board is a good way to go on a budget. I have one in the M-ATX format and it's a fun little PC.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Yeah! I'll have to agree that this mini-itx motherboard is a good investment, especially if your into AMD products. Although I do use AMD products, but not to the extent of using Intel. I like that it has 802-11n Wi-Fi built in, 8 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports & 4 Sata 3 @ 6GB/s ports all in a small compact board. Bad luck though that I have already got my intel based MSI micro-atx board set up with a Core i5 680 @ 3.6 GHz, retail boxed windows XP Pro SP2 updated to SP3. I do like to keep my boards for well over a year. The one that I am using to get onto this forum & also I intend to dual boot this with XP Pro x64 bit as I have left 100GBs of spare HDD space on my velociraptor. Also I disagree with the terms being downgraded to Sata 6GB/s instead of just typing in Sata 3 or just Sata 3 @ 6GB/s. I got the feeling that they done this because I have noticed in the past that those idiots could not always get it right on their motherboard sites.
