I recently purchased a ht-200b htpc case from digital connection. My current htpc ( the one I will be putting into this case ) has a micro atx motherboard and also doesn't support fire-wire. Could someone recommend a good full size motherboard that is compatible with my current set-up and that supports fire-wire? My specs are below. I would like to stay with integrated audio right now, but will be upgrading in the future. Thanks in advance.

I would suggest an nforce2 chipset based motherboard. The Asus A7N8X Deluxe or Abit NF7-S seem to be popular choices.

I love my ABIT NF7-S. The nforce2 sound is awesome. And yes, it includes a firewire port.
