While I agree it isn't quite the best advice for an EPIA, you *can* have 
multiple PCI cards on these boards with a riser, so it isn't completely 
worthless, just mostly. A better suggestion would be to use the latest 
unichrome stuff, since its getting pretty good. I plan to go down that road 
myself in the near future...
