Super-budget Intel motherboards

As part of our on-going investigation into the best Home Theatre PC hardware for our all-new HTPC section in our buyer's guide, we're currently delving into the latest AMD Socket FM2 and Intel LGA1155 budget offerings. Today we're investigating just how cheap you can go with Intel's current mid-range CPU socket when it comes to motherboards, and the sacrifices you'll probably have to make.

We've picked one Mini-ITX and one Micro-ATX motherboard that represent the cheapest examples we we could find at time of writing. They're the sizes most popular with HTPC builders too, and we'll be seeing which is worth considering or whether at this price, they're just too feature-needy to be of any real use.
