The G6950 gives you a much better CPU, a full PCI-E 16x slot, just as many SATA oirts
at £125 the Gigabyte board is already expensive (thank Mr Tax Man for the extra fiver), but we doubt it'll be uncompetitive versus other E-350 boards. Others might be tempted by Asus' passively cooled and feature filled-Asus Deluxe E-350 boards, but these are likely to cost even more money.

Nevertheless, AMD managed to release a chip 2 years after intel, with a slight advantage over the Atom+ION platform, but that's just too late too little.

Nice spot! But it's not mini-ITX though :)

I've had a bit of a google, but I've not been able to find a list of different hardware that does allow HW acceleration on linux xbmc.
