$99.99 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A very good option for HTPC builders. Can be found for a steal from online retailers--around $50. Decent integrated graphics and audio for the price.

The Cons:Limited PCI expansion--only one PCI-E x16, one PCI, no PCI-E x1. Features 10/100 integrated LAN when Gigabit is pretty much standard. Very limited number of SATA ports at a mere 2.
