MSI's K9AG Neo2 Digital has an HDMI port right at the back. That means the K9AG Neo2 Digital is ready for HTPC use right out of the box - as opposed to a DVI-to-HDMI converter, the HDMI jack signifies it has audio as well as video signals. The former can only provide the HDMI video signal.
The MSI K9AG Neo2 Digital motherboard retails for little more than $86 CDN ($85 USD, £42 GBP). Given what's offered, it's a very well priced board for just about any low cost PC you've got on the drawing board. This is particularly true when the affordability of a good mid-level AMD Athlon64 processor is considered. In this review PCSTATS will be running our benchmark suite with an Athlon64 X2-5000+ in the drivers seat, but you could just as well substitute an AMD Athlon64 X2-6000+ for about $180.
