Pros: All-in-one, works with Linux Mint
Overall Review: This board works perfectly for me. Making an HTPC with an older receiver without HDMI input I needed the optical out. Running HDMI to a 50" plasma and audio with optical out allows me to get 5.1 surround with no problems.
Despite driver compatibility issues between ATI and Linux I have had no trouble streaming Hulu, networked DVDs, mlb.tv, etc. Also, wireless card worked flawlessly without the need to install additional drivers.
I am using an AMD Athlon II x3 440 CPU.
