miniATX mobo recommendations
Hey all, I'm looking to build a new miniATX box that I can use for a little gaming and multimedia. I was looking at Abit's fatality board, but I would like some real world experiences with these boards. How well are the graphics cards on some of these boards supported in linux? Do they perform at least half way decent? Any opinions and experiences would be appreciated.:D

I do not recommend the mini's for gaming, especially high definition gaming. I use mini's for green, energy efficient home servers that are up 24/7 and for low res games. For high res games I recommend a tower (better cooling, easier to change parts).

Thanks fro the reply. Since I've already got a large server tower running 24/7 I was thinking a mini would be the ticket. I've seen some miniATX cases that are slightly larger than the rest. Maybe that would help any air flow issues. Thanks.
