All raid is really software raid

After asking a few geek nerds, they said the Asus AT3GC-I motherboard with an integrated Atom was a good choice. It's $100. It does have the crappy dogish Intel 945 video chipset it, but it shouldn't matter for a NAS. About $100.

The Zotac IONITX-C-U is about the same except it has a motherboard raid controller and has Nvidia graphics. About $150. I've seen a machine with this (one of the nerds) 512MB runs Ubuntu nice. Video at 720p works unlike the 945.
