point taken. I was looking for the PCIe option as the locally
available PCI nvidia options are expensive ($200) and only have 256MB.
But those intel boards are a good price indeed! Local pricing for what
you suggest is:

$160 Intel ITX with dual core Atom 330
$30   512M RAM
$193 nVidia 8400GS w/256MB RAM PCI
