Sorry I dont have any advise for you.
Im in the smae position as you. I need a mATX motherboard with TV-Out.
My problem is the size of the heatsink and fan. I have a real thin case.
Im about to choose a motherboard from MSI, RS482M-IL. And then a AMD
Turion 64 Mobile MT-34 processor. They claim it only will use 25 watt.
I hope I can underclock it and only use a heatsink. I don't know about the
ATI Radeon Xpress 200. But I think it will work.
