Just got this board for £58 plus Vat and I am very happy with its design for my next HTPC. I'm hoping it will oveclock well when I get my X2 3800+ and some C4 XMS ram end of this month. I'm going to put this board in this case which has a Tagan 480 PSU. Has anyone used this board before?

it's supposedly an excellent overclocker - the best AM2 mATX.
however, if that's an EE 3800+ X2 they apparently aren't great overclockers - something to do with the silicon & the process to drop the power requirement.

Haven't used that board but it looks pretty decent. I'm guessing it's:

Abit NF-M2 nView WiFi, NF430, S AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 800, SATA II, SATA RAID, uATX, VGA?

The EE 3800 X2 seems a very good choice as I doubt you'll want to overclock it. Infact you'll probably want to undervolt and underclock it. I'm considering one myself, along with possibly a ASUS M2NPV-VM (because it has not only onboard DVI but also s-video and composite HD output - but not HDMI sadly).
