How about GeForce 8200 and nVIDIA HDMI as an alternative? (Perhaps
even new 9300 or something for Intel. Don't know much about that,
sorry.) There is even one ITX (made by Jetway), and lots of mATX. Much
cheaper than G45, and I believe that it supports 8ch LPCM. Not sure if
it supports that on Linux, but there was a lot of work on that topic
