I've just bought a Gigabyte GS-73PVM-S2H [*] that sounds to be fairly
similar to the ASUS (GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i MCP / Intel 755 / Micro
ATX)  I specifically wanted Intel and MicroATX and two PCI slots which is
why I chose that one.

I've had a bit of fun trying to get the onboard LAN working - I was trying
in Vista before I installed Linux, but never quite got there and gave up! 
It seems to work fine under Linux though, which is all I care about -
using the forcedeth driver under a recent kernel.

I've not got as far as testing the graphics yet, but the NVIDIA module
loads and detects the card ok according to dmesg.  I'm pretty sure it has
a DVI connector on the back.
