Phew, a lot of Mini-ITX stuff and it's still not over. We have yet another one on its way for December and this one will be a bit more of an in-depth investigation. But for now we have to give the ZOTAC 630i its praise. For a HTPC it's lacking a few features that the Albatron board had, such as a dedicated HDMI port, 6 stereo audio ports for 8ch analog audio and Toslink/RCA S/PDIF ports.
While using the Intel CPU, it's still not a good gamer unless you plan to limit your gaming to the likes of Quake 3 or Far Cry, then you may get away with it if you limit the system to 1024x768 graphics and low detail.
Considering the board has a DVI to HDMI converter, we won't punish ZOTAC too much, but on their future Mini-ITX boards we would love to see S/PDIF and HDMI port as standard.
