Dear list readers,
sorry for bothering you.
I want to buy a new mainboard with the following features.
1. It has to be supported by coreboot.
2. I want to have a board with onboard graphics, since I do not play any
games. I hope to save power this way.
3. Probably it should support a processor with at least 2 GHz.
4. Firewire would be nice.
(I want to maybe do some video editing once every three months.)
Of course I read . It looks like I have to make a decision between
onboard graphic and firewire – but 2. has higher priority (or is my
assumption regarding power consumption wrong).
So this is my result.
- GIGABYTE_GA-2761GXDK  (the link in the wiki on the board 
somehow leads to )
Unfortunately this board seems not to be available in Germany/Europe(?).
Therefore I weakened requirement 1. a little bit to 1‘.
1‘. It has or will have coreboot support.
That is why I am planning to buy the ASUS M2V-MX SE  having read the
announcement from Rudolf Marek .
Any thoughts/suggestions from you to my decision/requirements.
Thanks a lot for your time.
