    Because they're small?

    I'd go for the ASRock Conroe945G-DVI

    Alternatives are few and far between at the moment (there's an asus board as well). Not sure either are properly out just yet either.

    the asrock board would be my choice too used to be poor quality but as of late they have started making alot better quality boards and reasonable prices normally

    I don't know any specific boards other than the asrock and asus, sorry. But I do that there *will* be some, that's just market sense, but not anything specific.

    Remember there aren't even that many core 2 duo chips out there yet, it just takes a while for these things to build up and come out.
