  1. Zotac isn't a newcomer to the compact computing scene having released various nettops, HTPCs and related hardware. Today, the company has added two more products to its portfolio: the M880G-ITX WiFi and 880G-ITX WiFi. Both are ITX motherboards based on AMD chips with similar features overall, but each utilizes a different CPU technology.

    I've had good luck with Zotac products. Haven't used a MB from them before though. I wish they would offer a full size ATX utilizing AMD chipsets.

    I'm typing on a system that uses Zotac's first LGA775/Geforce9300 itx motherboard. Besides only having two on board SATA slots, it has been a dream for me. That open AM3 board looks interesting though. 'Bout time they gave AMD some love, though honestly I'm waiting to see how Sandy Bridge turns out and I eagerly await reviews on ASUS's new itx board that is to go with it.

    edit: Though, having only a PCIe x1 slot is rather limiting. My RAID card is a x4 card, and it also means you can't really put a higher end card in there (though they DO make x1 cards. Having a x16 slot on itx was one of the simple beauties of a lot of Zotac's Intel itx boards.

    These are very interesting motherboards for HTPC... That x1 slot can be populated either with high quality sound card or TV tuner...
