    Ive been looking to invest in on of the VIA small form factor motherboards and CPU combos for a NES pc Im looking to build but for all my searching I havent found such a mother board with PCI-E.

    Is there such a product or do they all come with PCI?

    I dont realy know too much about VIA this has all been gathered from thier website as only 1 of the 20 plus computer stores I went to actulay acknowledged that VIA make processors.

    Thanks for any info you can offer

    Via's website doesn't show any mini-ITX or nano-ITX boards with PCIe. If you don't need something quite that small, Asus's K8V-VM is 245 x 192mm (a bit smaller than mATX).

    There are some mini-ITX Commell boards available here, but those are not cheap ($500+ without a CPU; the CPU is a standard Core Duo/Core Solo/Pentium-D).

    It doesn't have PCI-E, but check out the mini-ITX Asrock ki51pv-754 as it has Geforce 6100 graphics (which means you may not need PCI-e after all). A CPU for it would be dirt cheap too.
