Has anybody used on the the Geforce 7050PV boards?  I was looking at the
6150 boards because I want integrated VGA, microATX, NVidia, and DVI/HDMI
output.  Can anybody confirm if the HDMI works with the NVidia driver?  I
also have heard that there are problems with the OSD with newer Nvidia
cards.  Does the 7050PV work correctly under Mythtv?  If so, this
motherboard with the new AMD BE-2350 seems to be a killer combination.
