Where are the micro atx motherboards that offer PCI-Express 2.0??
I was able to find just one motherboard that supports it but its an AMD/ATI hybrid: GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G. Some of the people are having loading nvidia graphics cards and that the North and South bridges run extremely hot. I keep hearing bad things about the Phenoms but wouldn't mind giving AMD another chance if they are almost on par with the Q6600.
I am trying to build a SFF pc for gaming and dvd's that is mobile, i already have the case, ram, psu and all just need a good motherboard and processor combo. Does anyone else know of any micro atx's that support PCI-Express 2.0 that are good and won't break the bank? motherboard price range is $100-$150.
I haven't been able to find any for intel so far. I don't know if the 780G motherboards will work well for me. I would like to use an nvidia video card and I have been hearing problems with the 780G mobo's and nvidia cards. The only cards you will be able to use are ATI 3800 series cards.
