    How about a section for micro-ATX boards (and some reviews maybe?) Reply

    Any plans on doing a review on this motherboard? Asrock M1695 939Dual-SATA2
    Hopefully not a cherry picked one from the manufacture either.

    Well, we could recommend a $120 SLI motherboard, or a $250 Xpress 200 motherboard. SLI for me - that's for sure :)

    Are the new Socket 939 boards based on the GeForce 6150/6100 (and 410/430 southbridges) not yet included in this guide?

    I think they are very good alternatives to nForce4, especially if you want both integrated graphics and gigabit LAN.

    I was just looking at the Asus A8N-VM CSM, looks like it'd do well for an HTPC but I wish it had digital audio inputs. It has a coax S/PDIF out but I'd like a board with optical I/O. Do any of those others have optical in and out?

    It looks like the only board that has In and Out is the Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9. Although it has coaxial in and out, you can always purchase a coaxial to optical converter/adapter. Reply

    Yeah, the Gigabyte offerings look good, though I'll be waiting for the GA-K8N51PVMT-9 with 6150/430. Reply

    Updated. ;) Reply

    Indeed, kudos to AT! :) Reply

    Agree totally. In fact I'm posting from one (Gigabyte K8N51GMF-9) that is pretty nice.
    Featureset spanks the listed integrated video boards (Microatx with Gigabit, firewire, 3Gb SATA2, 1x PCIe and 16x PCIe and 2 PCI slots, HD audio, athhlon X2 compatible.)

    To top it off, MWAVE carries it for $72.50! cheap, good and fast. Such a sweet deal, yet strangely not in the list.

    Yes, I've had my eye on that exact board as well. Now all I need is retail S939 Sempron availability for the perfect office system. :) Reply
