It's a garden-variety ASUS amd64 micro-atx board with an nVidia 8400GS,
(the newer vintage) running Gentoo Linux, like the rest of the machines
around the house.  I got a cheapo mceusb remote from Amazon and am using
that.  I never got the onboard hd-audio working well, (too soft) so I
have an old Yamaha sound card plugged in.
