  1. What is the best mini-ATX mobo that accepts Intel Quad? I would prefer NVidia chipset as well.

    Thanks

    Dang... what up with that? All the mfg's should know by now that NVidia is ruling the market.

    I agree, I wonder why no mfg. makes an nvidia 650i or 680i sli/ultra board in micro atx format. I think that'd be a pretty sweet setup.

    The only nvidia intel boards are based on the 6100/6150 integrated graphics chipset, which is pretty average, and doesn't seem to like to overclock very much.

    I just purchased the Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R mobo today. Curious question about memory though. I looked at their memory compatibility list and it only lists a max of 1GB chips. I wanted to totally max it out (8GB) with Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX. The question is: Do you think the mobo will have a problem with 2GB sticks even though its not on their compatibility list? It doesn't make any sense that the board can take 8GB, but them not listing 2GB sticks.

    They were probably just "too cheap" to buy any 2gb sticks to test, it should be fine. Note for 4gb or more memory you need windows in 64bit format.
