    Newbie asking for advice about a Mobo


    Hello Linux Forums!

    I am looking at a new motherboard for a developer machine at my place of work. The main requirement is that the onboard audio quality must be top notch as we are a sound system company.

    My requirements are:
    Mini ITX
    Small fan
    Decent processor
    VGA output
    Audio Out
    Cheapish (50-60)
    Has to be compatible with Debian 5

    Can Anyone tell me if the ECS HDC-I2 would be appropriate?

    Thanks

    To get good sound from a PC, any decent sound card will do. Just use the line out and feed it to a kickass amp and speakers. Make sure you keep the PC line out level below the point of clipping. Oh yeah, don't play low bitrate mp3s, use lossless audio (flac/wav/etc).

    That's my trick anyway.
