Negatory - PhysX requires a minimum of 256MB dedicated video memory.

Slick looking board though. AMD has done a great job with the 780G/GX, as well as nVidia with their own 8200/8300 series, so it's nice to finally see a good integrated media platform on the Intel end of things. I just hope it doesn't have as many issues as some of their old Intel chipsets did...

[edit] Not in the official press release, but from reading around price is estimated at ~$120, putting it in a pretty decent range for the unique features you're getting. Unfortunately though, no CPU voltage adjustment on this model =/

Its quite silly how many boards forget digital audio in the HTPC segment. (HDMI audio doesnt count, as lots of people have seperate audio from their TV)

Looks good, especially like the coloring of the sata slots, sexy. First time I see ATX power socket on top (kinda like it there) and clean component placement overall.

Negatory - PhysX requires a minimum of 256MB dedicated video memory.
But does the software know if it's 256MB on board or 256MB from memory? Would be kinda funny for them to boast about PhysX in their press release, if they haven't tested it to work.

Still at the moment it will be too weak for a PPU who knows when the drivers mature and first games come out. This would be perfect for the job though if you want m-ATX and physics with ATI card.
