Tiny motherboards

Postby Turkeyscore.com on Mon Mar 24, 2003 11:31 pm

I am thinking of building a small computer for lan Party's. Something that takes a Pentium 4 and has an agp slot, preferably 8x. I also want it to be reasonably priced. the Mini-itx ones just arent good enough for me. The alienware navigator looks good but it costs about 2000 too much. I would like to build my own. Maybe 1 or 2 pci slots, integrated network, audio etc.

You look into getting a shuttle case like the one shown below. They come with 1 PCI and 1 AGP slot, while everything else is integrated.

have you seen any motherboards like that for sale by themselves or just in barebone kits? I want to build my own case like the ones at www.mini-itx.com

www.mwave.com sells some of the shuttle motherboards by themselves, however i only see the FS40 and FV25.

The FS40 is an athlon SIS 740 chipset which I believe will support upto athlon 2600+..

The FV25 is a socket 370 VIA PLE133T chipset motherboard that will support C3 upto 900mHz (problems with 1gHz and up)or Tualatin pIII upto 1.4gHz, should support all socket 370 Celerons to my knowledge.

several companies are coming out with mini-itx mobo's so keep on the lookput for systems from Iwill and MSI as well as VIA and shuttle.
