Yes, but all of Intel's mITX boards are socket M, which, if you look through newegg's listings, you'll see that the socket M processors are all outrageously overpriced, and probably wouldn't even perform on par with the 4850e, and would most-likely put out more heat/use more power when you factor in Intels Northbridges.
This is the cheapest one newegg has in stock, and its only clocked at 2.16ghz
Not to mention the fact that since mITX boards only support 1 DIMM slot, you're not going to be able to run dual-channel RAM, and you'll need all the memory performance you can get. Which is where AMD's integrated memory controller comes in.Edited by HugeDink - 6/30/08 at 11:03pm
