Zotac GeForce 8200 ITX WiFi MotherboardWed, Mar 18, 2009 - 12:00 AM
The Zotac GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi was a cool little board to look at. I had a lot of fun just opening the box and investigating the board. I actually thought it was some type of mistake when I received the package!
Performance on this board was very good, especially when you consider the market for the board. It kept up with the other boards in every area with the exception of gaming. This is NOT a board that is designed for that at all.
The layout and setup of the board were much better than expected with a micro board. I did not feel the board was too cramped as I used it and set it up. Nothing seemed to tight at all. The only gripe would be the 4-pin 12v connector position, but it was not a deal breaker at all.
The bundle was very good for this type of board. The addition of the DVI to HDMI adaptor was very nice! The WiFi is very cool and a nice touch for this board.
When it comes to price, we were only able to find this board at a couple of places on the web. The naming scheme may be the culprit, as this board is also called the GF8200-C-E. So make sure and do a search for that as well. The Zotac GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi can be found for $109.99 plus shipping at Newegg, which is not to bad for a setup like this that includes WiFi and support for Phenom II processors.
Legit Bottom Line: This is a great little board that will fit perfect for a very precise application: HTPC. With more and more people looking into building their own, this is certainly a board that is worth be considered as you do your research!
