Mini-ITX board choices
Looking for a Mini-ITX motherboard and I have had good results with the Gigabyte boards I have used in the past
Pros / Cons with these choices?
Gigabyte GA-55N-USB3 1156 socket
Gigabyte GA-H67N-USB3-B3 1155 socket
both of these are out of stock at newegg but I could look around elsewhere or wait. couldn't find a Z68 mini-itx from gigabyte
found these available
ASRock H67M-ITX 1155 socket
ASRock Z68M-ITX 1155 socket
Any other choices that you guys would recommend?
Well what specifically do you want from the mini-itx other then the size? What are you going to be using it for? The first board you linked isn't even the same socket as the other three, it's the older 1156 (not worth buying anymore new)
You are aware ncix.com has a US site as well that seems to have larger selection of 1155 socket mini-itx boards.
The purpose will just be an office computer, hooked to a network, running some dental software, and MS office. Nothing too taxing. Just want it to be small and fast. Not planning on putting a video card in it (at this time anyway). probably 8 GB ram with a 90 GB SSD.
I wasn't aware of NCIX having a US site so thanks for that tip.
No problem, and good luck.
Grab an H61 or H67 board with a i3-2130 dual core or an i5-2400/2500 if a quad core is needed. Most mini ITX boards aren't very good at overclocking, so I'd just go stock. You also may want to look at an AMD quad core for a bang for your buck alternate.
I really like this one if AMD is a option for you

I have made a few systems with this board and the little remote is cool to since its a keyboard as well.
I will be building a new itx system in the next few weeks using this board I will post pix when I get it all ready to build
Thanks for all the suggestions!
