    Hey guys, I'm in the process of building a very small custom made HTPC, this is pretty much the only Mini-ITX motherboard I've been able to find that seems suitable and is available where I live.

    It is the Intel BLKDG45FC.

    Specifications as follows (sorry about the formatting)

    Form factor: Mini-ITX (6.70 inches by 6.70 inches [171.45 millimeters by 171.45 millimeters])
    Support for an Intel® Core™2 Duo processor in an LGA775 socket
    Support for an Intel® Pentium® dual-core processor in an LGA775 socket
    Support for an Intel® Celeron® dual-core processor in an LGA775 socket
    Support for an Celeron® processor 400 sequence in an LGA775 socket
    Two 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
    Support for DDR2 800/667/533 MHz DIMMs
    Support for up to 4 GBS of system memor
    Chipset: Intel® G45 Express Chipset
    Audio: Intel® High Definition Audio in the following configuration:
    8-channel (7.1) audio subsystem with five analog audio outputs and one optical S/PDIF digital audio output using the IDT 92HD73E audio code
    Video: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD onboard graphics subsystem with integrated HDMI + DVI-I display ports
    LAN support: Gigabit (10/100/1000 Mbits/sec) LAN subsystem using the Intel® 82567LF Gigabit Ethernet Controller
    Peripheral interfaces:
    One serial port via header
    Up to 10 USB 2.0 ports (6 back ports and 4 via headers)
    5 Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s ports, including 1 eSATA back port with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 support
    Consumer IR receiver and emitter (via internal)

    Would this be suitable for a small HTPC? Any advice appreciated
