The PAL-video-only boards are useful for:
- MP3/Ogg jukeboxes
- Compile farms
- On-board computers for cars
For a workstation, there are Mini-ITX boards that have built-in VGA
output. Certainly a 800MHz PIII would be powerful enough to run VNC to
control a remote computer? The hard part in building a silent PC is
getting a hard drive that is quiet enough. In a small case, you have
very little opportunity to deaden hard drive noise.
