my aopen i915GMm-HFS motherboard has compoent out (as well as s-video, dvi-d 
and vga). it also has gigabit ethernet, firewire, usb, and 7.1 audio 
(including sdpif in/out). it uses a pentium-m processor and most of the time 
the cpu fan doesn't spin. so it is very quiet. it has a pci-express slot and 
2 pci slots. it makes a good myth motherboard, but it is expensive.

it is not all plain sailing. the x server took a bit of work to do Xv and 
likewise it took some work to get alsa configured. finnaly, i don't have 
anything to test the component output with (yet).

i have mine in a silverstone 10M, with a PVR-350.
