On the other hand, have a look at e.g. the Asus M2N-MX/DVI2. It's dirt
cheap, a suitable processor can also be had at a very low price, also
very cheap, vga is included, it even has dvi out. Total system
price will be lower than an EPIA. And you can buy it in just about any
shop, right now. Brand new. Imagine if that card could run LinuxBIOS.
Now, how far from the mcp55 is the nforce 430? How much will the
integrated vga complicate things that are not related to graphics?
