Default Mini-ITX MB?

Hi there, I'm a new member.

I bought a mini-ITX case lately for a new HTPC (Apex MI-008) but I'm having trouble finding much on ITX motherboards in the forums, a search on ITX comes up empty. :-(

Are people avoiding the m-ITX platform for some reason? Apart from cut up fingers, I mean.

I have a list that I'm researching, if anyone has any feedback on these, I would very much appreciate it! I'm looking for a "value" MB, not high end, just to allow browsing, email, and HD support would be nice too. I want low power, so any opinions on whether to go AMD or Intel would be welcome, I know Core 2 Duo would be great power wise but AM2 seems to have the edge on power consumption. The AM boards seem to be more expensive. I don't plan to add a discreet GPU.

Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX LGA775 ~$170
Jetway 780G AM2 ~$95
INTEL DG45FC LGA775 ~$150
Zotac NF610I-D-E MINI-ITX LGA775 ~$65
Zotac GF9300-D-E MINI-ITX LGA775 Wifi etc loaded ~$170
ZOTAC NF630I-F-E LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 7100 Mini ITX WIFI ~$100
Zotac GF8200-C-E MINI-ITX AM2 GeForce 8200 ~$140

Anyhow, I'm straining at the bit to go buy a mini-ITX MB (if I can find one) and start building!

Thanks!
Dan
