I can recommend this mother board for a multimeda entertainment system.

Summary: I purchased the AT3IONT-I Delixe Motherboard to use as a silent frontend for my Mythtv PVR system. This motherboard is well set up for the task with HDMI, SPDIF & onboard wireless network. In my case I used the VGA output, the SPDIF for audio and onboard the Gigabit LAN. Mythtv operates under Linux and I had problems getting the audio working on the HDMI so saved time and used the optical SPDIF and when I have more time I will work on the HDMI audio output.
Great Start to your new HTPC!! or something less...

Summary: It's a great little board. Great start to an HTPC. The HDMI and Optical Audio work great and are flawlessly connect to my HDTV and Surround Sound. I couldn't be happier with the performance. I did however get a differnt version that dosn't have wireless or onboard DC adapter. Which was odd, but I was able to work through it. I'm running Windows 8 Developer Preview on a Solid State Drive with 2GB of DDR3, and this thing doesn't seem interested in bogging down.
Summary: I haven't owned a new computer since the Pentium 2 days and since then I've had nothing but hand me down's of hand me down's. So I've had to get used to the fact that everything I've tried to do with a computer in the last ten years has been nothing but a waiting game. Internet? Wait. Games? Waaaaait to load, low frame rates. Etc etc. But with this motherboard, 4gbs of ram, and an ssd I am now genuinely impressed EVERYTIME I DO ANYTHING!
