It says it can have a Core 2 Quad. I know the Core 2 Exreme is a Quad Processor. So would it work.

Per Zotac it supports: Intel Core™ 2 Duo, Core™ 2 Quad, Core™ 2 Extreme, Pentium,

I did not see any BIOS updates that effected CPU support, so it should be good to go for 1333 FSB CPUs and lower.

Right now I am getting this motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813500041
But I'm slightly scared of getting get. The reason is because I have never heard of ZOTAC. But the reason I want it is because it has 512MB of Nvidia 9300 intergrated graphics. So if anybody knows a better motherboard please tell me!!!
I want really good onboard graphics.
To be compatible with a processor thats not exspensive. SO no i5 and i7
Sata 3.0/s
Thanks

Going back to your old thread....

Finding a mini ITX motherboard is difficult to begin with, finding a motherboard of any type that has quality integrated graphics is even more troublesome. I haven't heard much about Zotac to go either way, other than they are relatively new entrants to the U.S. technology market. The GeForce 9300 runs with shared VRAM, sharing it with memory, but does usually out perform Intel G45 integrated graphics and comes with a Hybrid SLI option. You could go with a more expensive i3 system, since the video is integrated with the CPU. I'm not sure what your uses for that PC is, some type of Mac Mini-esque device? A set top box? If you can upscale to a larger case, and thus larger motherboard with more options, that would be best. Otherwise, you're largely stuck with either Zotac or Intel branded motherboards.
