To use the tortured car analogy....you are not talking about "Honda Civic" cars here. You are talking about....IDK....a modern day version of a 1970s Pinto or Yugo...maybe a car that is made in China to chinese 'standards'. A Honda civic is good, solid and reliable. The bottom of the barrel mobos are not. Cheap caps, cheap materials, corners are cut to keep cost down...ie all round cheap. Do your customers a favour and bump up a level on the mobo. Spend the extra 30 or 40 pounds. Even if you dont boost the CPU....boost the mobo. That is the main area you are off in. Everything else....is debatable. :)
