Yes, I was planning on getting a case with front 1394 ports. As for the
TV-out, the uATX spec specifies 4 slots; most divide it up as 3 PCI & 1
AGP (uATX boards with 4 PCI slots are scarce). So, if I use the
onboard GF4MX, I can use the unsused AGP expansion slot in the case for
the TV-out header, and still have 3 PCI slots open.
