    Re: mATX SLI?

    They have been mATX SLi boards around besides that one, I'm fairly sure I've seen them. They also have shuttle PCs with SLi, I believe.

    Re: Running dual monitors and tv out?

    crenn is right, i found that out the hard way. your best option is to get a cheap card and use that for the TV. I use an old geforce mx 4000(yes 4000) pci card for mine.
