Since there's no response so far: I'm building a similar system at the
moment (same hardware). It's not finished yet so I can't really answer your
questions at this time ether. However, I chose the via motherboard because
of its size and the possibility to build a stylish system for the living
room (I use a cubit 3 case). If size and style doesn't matter to you then go
for a regular ATX solution. It's cheaper, faster and you will most probably
have less problems building the system... As soon as I have my system
running I will be happy to let you know the results concerning your
performance questions.
