Sorry about the memory, I meant 2 gig, I forgot to add the x2 there
I always stuck with ATI, my GeForce experiences in comparison to ATI is were not too great. I evaluated a couple of cards in the past and ATI always seemed to get better results.
Problem with the motherboard is I am not exactly interested in throwing away money for integrated graphics when I will only end up disabling them in order to use my video-card. However you are right about the mini format, I will check out the links you provided.
Thanks for your input!
