I love the MB, and actually for about $10 more they make one that
will accept a quad core, and has another pci slot. Only issue I have
had with it so far is the fact that I can't figure out audio out of
the hdmi port with linux. then again ive only used linux for about 2
weeks and it hasn't been at the top of my list of things to learn.
i'll have to look into profiles, i haven't set anything up using them
yet, but maybe something is set by default. I read in manuel
something about customizing each different format playback, i'm sure
i will be doing that soon enough too. part of my issue is i haven't
set up a remote yet, and my cheep keyboard only has a 5' cord. I
just got discouraged with this video thing and had to hop on WoW and
kill some stuff... lol
