Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent MicroATX board. I believe I killed my MB last night and need to replace it and the processor.


I need 2 Serial Ports (one or both can be internal headers) and an AGP slot. The computer will be playing MP3s through a stereo and DVDs to a TV (standard definition) via SVideo or Component Cables, so it doesn't need much processor mojo. Up until yesterday it was based on a PIII and worked fine.

I have two Foxconn 865M01 board that work fine. Don't know if they support PIII's. Also tried a Abit S10 whihc I dont' like. All of these are for Intel socket 478 processors.

I looked at a few Foxconn boards, but they appear to only have a single COM port. Unfortunately I need one for my IR Receiver and one for my VFD Display.

I'm very happy with my 7NIF2 as well. Working nicely as my 16:9 SD Windows MCE HTPC. Not using the on-board video though these days, fitted a Radeon 9600 Pro card instead (for UK RGB VGA to SCART interlacing reasons)
