Hmm, ok.  That means getting an nVidia chipset though, and I swore off 
nVidia many years ago after getting bitten too many times by their crappy 
drivers and lack of giving a damn about my bug reports... :(

I'm tempted to err towards a Core 2 based mini-ITX system, just for the 
safety of knowing I have enough CPU grunt without relying on crazy-ass 
proprietary drivers.
