I fully intend to buy one of these for my living room as a myth frontend and
pair it with an AMD X2 4850.
(FYI According to the manual you can use two of those audio jacks as S/PDIF

Also, here is a positve review of it:

Anyway, I'll let you all now how it does later this year :)
(that is unless Jetway's AMD 780g based mini-itx board comes out first)
