I love this board. I've got the 939 version running my dedicated  
frontend (hardware died, needed replacing, _2 weeks_ from AM2 launch.  
Oy.).  The TV out is good quality and easy to set up. Actually, my  
frontend has nothing other than CPU/memory/mobo/DVD, although it's  
running diskless off a backend. But no extra video card or sound card.
