mATX boards

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any joy with mATX boards?Ive been using a ASUS mATX board in a wife friendly cube sized box, and am about to switch to Intel processors. If you're wondering why mATX then it's simply to make it wife friendly. I've a NAS with 1TB of disk for non FS stuff,so I don't need tons of disk in the actual FS machine. So it's basically a stripped down machine just for FX.My thinking had been to buy a E8400 and a relatively cheap MB. X48 hasn't made it to mATX yet. I've a couple of gigs of 800Mhz ram, a fastish Seagate drive, and a 8800GT.I know this isn't the state of the art but all things x48 are expensive right now and with new processors due later in the summer this should put me on until the new year.Anyone any view on suitable mATX boards? a 8400 will cost
