Question: does the pci express x16 slot accept any cards besides graphics cards? (such as TV tuners) My experience with two other H55 boards (including the earlier Zotac model) tells me that non-graphics cards are not supported, which is a bummer. It does support PCI Express x1 cards, you have to g...

I'm tempted to build a couple of these system for my lounge and bedroom, to play HD movies (MKV, 720/1080) over the network from a NAS. My main concern is playing online content from the likes of Youtube, Hulu and BBC iPlayer.. especially in HD. The bind I'm stuck is that I need a solution in the n...

It's an Azurewave card with an Atheros chipset.

The GeForce 8200 is no different than the Radeon HD 4000 series in terms of audio capabilities. The HD 4000 does not bitstream Dolby True HD or DTS-HDMA, to my knowledge.

The benefit of the GeForce 8200 chipset over the AMD 780G is the support for LPCM audio. With the GeForce 8200, you can have a DVD player (Cyberlink PowerDVD) decode lossless audio formats such as DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD or send raw uncompressed multi-channel PCM audio to your HDMI ca...

Also for those looking for an Intel-based solution, we'll have our 9300-ITX WiFi next month with PCIe x16 and an MSRP of $139.99. This is great news. I've been waiting for ECS to release their 9300 mini-itx board. It sounds like you guys may beat them to market. From the specs the products sound si...

As for the 8200-ITX WiFi missing from the website, let me look into it. We recently revamped the product pages an i...
