    Does anyone know of the type of mainboards found in SFF cases like the XPC and EPoX Mini Me that only have the AGP and the single PCI port? It's for my new system, but I don't want to have to pay for the case or other stuff, just the mainboard. I've googled for this, but couldn't find anything at Shuttle or EPoX's site or on the web. Any help would be greatly appreciated for this.

    shuttle dont sell them separately. Aparently there is a site within shuttle that does sell them but you have to ship from afar. Usually the mobos cost a LOT on their own.

    as he's in canada, you can get a hold of stuff direct from shuttle (yes they do sell their motherboards directly...

    http://us.shuttle.com/shop.asp?cat_id=22

    and he can probably get them shipped to canada for fairly cheap...)

    :search: better

    not always the case mind, some US companies are fussy.

    I looked into getting just the board. It was cheaper to get the barebones kit and remove the case.

    I think it's worth taking a look at micro-atx boards as someone already suggested. they arenm't quite as small as the shuttle boards. they are just shorted atx boards with 3 pci slots. you get all the features of a full sized board but they are much smaller. might be too big for what you want but they are still nice.

    this is what i did with my aopen nforce2 m-atx board

    I was looking for the same thing...the smallest board with an AGP slot.
    The best I could find was this one. It's pretty small (19cm x 20cm).
    There wasn't any sales/ordering info on the site, so I emailed them to see if they were available in single quantities.
    They are...but I was quoted a price of $237 USD :eeek:
    I ended up ordering a different board from Shuttle directly (no AGP).
