Roundup: Six Core 2 Motherboards Under $100

Amazingly, first and last place motherboards swap positions in our video encoding applications, but again the difference is too small to notice in actual use.

    isn't it about time to stop moaning about where the board manufacturers place a floppy connector? - for the most part its got a floppy drive plugged in for 10 mins during an xp install then chucked in a drawer somewhere and the cases 3.5" bay filled with an endlessly more useful card reader....
