Anyone know anything about Mini ITX computers ( EPIA )

I need links, reviews, linux compatiablity, anything you guys can give me, its hard to search for as I dont know much about them. I'm looking towards the EPIA 1ghz for a media center, video, emulator games etc....

I haven't seen anything on that particular one, but I have been eyeing this one.

I have one with RH9.0 installed, works great. One setup for Windows that is going for my car to be a datalog/GPS/stereo system, would have installed RH on it but the software I need to use for PowerFC doesn't run in Wine.

Both are 800MHz boards, not 1GHz, and they are different. For more info, this is a good site: http://www.mini-itx.com/

I've been looking at the m10000 because it has an onboard decoder card that has been shown to help big time with divx4+ playback over the slower nondecoder models. I've pretty made up my decision on the m10000, unless something else comes out better before the end of the year. They have another model thats like a c10000 that has dual nic's, awesome for a small firewall appliance, speically with the small watt power supply. They have a 1u rack that'll fit two of them. Man these things are great

What do you think about cases? Anywhere local that has a good selection or am I stuck with ordering online. Where is the best place to order one online, sami?

I got both computers from Fry's and the Linux is currently running w/o a case. For the Win-machine I built the case myself. It's running with a DC-DC power supply and laptop HD. I think the website has links to places to buy from.
