    Are there any motherboards out there with both of these slots or do I have to go up to microatx. I want to make a small htpc/gaming cube that has dedicated graphics 16x and a 1x slot for my hauppage tv tuner capture card thing. Onboard wifi is a plus but not necessary.

    ITX will only have one expansion slot, you'd have to look at DTX (really rare in motherboards and more of a case "standard")

    If you want more than one expansion slot you'd need to look at mATX, with 4 expansion slots.

    Thank you so much. I really want to put this hauppage in because I like to run my n64 through it and upscale. I guess I'll do microatx. I was originally planning on a Silverstone Sugo as my base chasssis, making a custom wood cover with more width for the h100i behind mobo tray and blow through fans. I have a NZXT Source 210 that might also be used (cut the tray and io plate off and then bolt into a wood frame.

    No it wouldn't work, and no there is nothing that converts USB or SATA to x1 PCI-E.

    If you want a video card and the TV tuner you'll have to go mATX.

    You can buy a USB TV Tuner though and run you n64 through that.

    Does anyone have any feedback on the Asrock Z77E ITX motherboard? Its my current top choice in my list right now but I would like opinions and also alternatives. Its pricey at ~$115. Again, I want to use a gold picked (5.0ghz) 2550k and a HD 7850 2GB.
