I have to say I would seriously consider buying this for my HTPC as the onboard GFX with its Svideo on composite outputs would suit that sort of setup well. However, having said that we decided we would have to keep this in our 939 testbed until it can be beat. However, I would love to see EQS get some overclocking features in there bios and still keep it in the same price range.
This board is not to be overlooked if you want something with onboard GFX and the price and support available are excellent, this it makes it my ideal choice for a full size HTPC or any non-gaming system. (Get the mobo without onboard VGA for a gaming setup) although it still performed better than the MSI, there is no point with onboard vga if you are going to slap a GFX card in. A very nice motherboard packed with all the features you need. 4x sata ports, raid and your usual stuff, if your not an overclocker and want good performance the EQS A58K9-MLF is not a bad place to start
4x Sata ports,
6 Channel sound,
Would like to see some sort of overclocking feature in bios
