Onboard nVidia GeForce 6150 graphics with HDTV-out (composite/svideo/component), VGA and DVI-D
I bought this board because it has onboard HDTV-out, which is very handy because I get full access to everything, eg BIOS config, from my TV which saves having to haul out a CRT to change settings. The intergrated graphics have enough balls to run MediaPortal fine with standard definition TV (hi-def is another 12 months away in New Zealand).
Having only 2 PCI slots (as a mATX mobo) is a bit of a downer, but it means I can eventually put it in a SFF case (currently using a big tower) with a nice quiet PSU. However, with the new tvserver I will be able to view 2 channels off the same transponder anyway...
It's working fine, but uses two different drivers for HDMI-Sound and Digital/analog (SPDIF/HDAUDIO) output, so you can use either HDMI for Sound-Output or SPDIF and analog.
