This has been the first ZOTAC motherboard we have managed to aquire, and most certainly won't be the the last. We have more waiting for us. For our first board we managed to get, we were left with a reasonably good impression. However, ZOTAC needs to do a little more planning on its budget boards. While cheaper is better, there is always room for improvement, even on the lower scale.
NVIDIA's GeForce 8300 chipset is an extremely impressive unit; its IGP is rather good for a cheap offering, but can't stand up to the might of a discrete GPU. If you're going for a budget HDMI based setup, the GeForce 8300 will do you if you're after an NVIDIA solution. It depends on your preference, as we have seen that the NVIDIA and AMD solutions are extremely competitive with each other. So, depending on what you're after, it's a bit of a research game these days.
Overall, we were satisfied with the board. However, we hope to see ZOTAC introduce some better layouts on their next series of boards.
