    “ZOTAC always listens to user requests for features. End users loved our ION ITX series motherboards, but some requested PCI Express expansion. We listened and thus the ZOTAC ION ITX F series was born,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International. “Our engineers managed to integrate PCI Express x16 expansion without sacrificing any of the award-winning features either.”

    The ZOTAC ION ITX-F series receives power from a high-performance NVIDIA ION graphics processor and energy-efficient dual-core Intel Atom 330 processor for a power packed combination that’s ready to take on high-definition video playback and everyday computing tasks.

    “The ZOTAC ION ITX-F series is a work horse. The powerful graphics processor and dual-core processor makes the ION ITX-F series ideal for home theater PCs or a desktop PC,” Mr. Berger said.

    The ZOTAC ION ITX-F series features flexible display connectivity with HDCP ready HDMI, DVI and VGA outputs for connectivity with analog or digital monitors and high-definition televisions for the best picture clarity with any display the user may choose.

    These things price range are ~$200 , so I don't think this one with a PCI-E should be more expensive..

    I am thinking of buying one of these for my Work PC

    Add a GTX260 single slot and you got a nice download/folding rig.

    Yep, Zotac are great. But dont forget Point of View. I just bought THEIR version POV/ION330 yesterday, because they already had PCIe and two SODIMM slots (for even lower power memory, and recycling laptop upgrades). Unfortunately, no wifi onboard, but as a mini-server, its going to be wired.
