ASUS AT3N7A-I, Perfect HTPC Motherboard

I want to build a new multimedia PC for my home. Currently I am looking for a perfect motherboard and processor for my HTPC. I read on many reviews about the ASUS AT3N7A-I motherboard that already bundled with NVIDIA Ion. This AT3N7A-I is perfectly compact, relatively inexpensive, and potentially noiseless HTPC or an entry-level gaming computer.

Inside this AT3N7A-I motherboard, ASUS already preinstalled Intel Atom 330. ASUS look like very serius on this HTPC motherboard. They use all solid capacitor on this board. ASUS AT3N7A-I boasts of a wide range of interfaces, including HDMI, eSATA, 3 x SATA-II (300 MB/s), 10 x USB, as well as a classic PCI slot, which was not available in the ION-based motherboards from Zotac.

NVIDIA ION gives the following features to the ASUS AT3N7A-I:

  • Support for two DDR2-800 memory modules (up to 4GB)
  • Integrated graphics based on GeForce 9300 (D-Sub and HDMI)
  • 1 x PCI
  • 10 x USB 2.0 (8 ports on the rear panel and an on-board header for 2 additional ports)
  • 3 x SATA300 plus one eSATA port on the rear panel
  • PS/2 keyboard connector
