    good (non-SLi) 939 motherboard? uATX okay?

    I'm thinking about updating my pc, but there's no way I'm going the SLi route so I thought I might be able to save a bit on the motherboard ... seems the nonSLi 939 mobo are largely around the £50-£65 mark while the SLi boards are closer to £100-£130. What I wanted to find out about was whether there's more to the SLi boards price than, well, the SLi bit? Am I likely to miss out on other features if I get a non-SLi mobo?

    The other thing I was wondering was whether uATX boards are likely to perform as well as ATX boards? Assuming you don't require the extra PCI/PCIe slots that is? I was thinking I might update my SoA pc to a 939 uATX solution that could become a HTPC in 6 months time you see...

    Yep, most likely you miss out SATA 3Gbs. The Biostar T-force is a uATX and it kicks ass
    Primary kit:
    Fuji S5 Pro - Nikkor AF 50/1.8 - Nikkor AF 85/1.8
    Epson RD-1

    Film Kit:
    Leica M3 - Summicron 50/2 DR - Zeiss ZM 25/2.8 - M-Rokkor 40/2

    Olympus OM2n - Zuiko 50/2 Macro - Zuiko 50/1.4 - Zuiko 35/2.8

    SATA300 is a myth anyway, the disks won't be able to punt out that sort of performance even if their bus can.
