    its almost time to build a new PC, i need a good mATX motherboard, yet i dont want to sacrifice much performance. Ive done some research and it looks like the mATX mobo market is due for a little refreshing, does anyone know if there are going to be any new motherboards coming out for the mATX realm?
    if so, who, what, and when?
    Also, does anyone know if there will be any more Sli/Crossfire mATX boards coming anytime soon, i only know of one from EVGA

    My target (core) hardware is
    Dual or Quad Core Intel Processor
    DDR2 RAM ~4GB
    either a 8800 GTX or one of those new AMD/ATI cards that is coming out (any ideas on when those will be available for purchase?)
    Case: Lian Li - v300B

    Any useful information / links will be very much apreciated

    try this: Foxconn G9657MA-8KS2H

    It's a nice little board, DDR2 and C2 Quad capable, with a full x16 slot and 2 PCI.

    Also has 4 RAM slots vs the more common 2, and should handle most heatsinks.

    I've used 1 and liked it a lot (still sticking to 680i though)
