Well, I finally did it. The SN85 is being swapped out this weekend with an Aria/ MSI K8T m-ATX motherboard. Turns out I do need the expandability after all. The Aria has competed it's necessary surgery (remove 120mm case grill, sleaved all power connectors, etc...) and now its time for the component swap. I'll snap a few pics once its complete. So, any idea where I can find some free hosting for the pictures?
