Gigabyte GA-73UM-S2H and Intel E2140 for Leopard OSx86?

I'm building a new HTPC/NAS which I plan to boot with LinuxMCE and Mac OS X Leopard (and maybe Win XP).

My current plan is:

GIGABYTE GA-73UM-S2H LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 7150 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard (GeForce 7150/nForce 630i chipsets)

Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2140 (1.6GHz 65W 1MB L2)

2 gigs DDR2-533 Ram

2 SATA HDDs (320+500)

Antec NSK2480 case with 380W PSU.

PVR-150 TV card.

Will this play nice with the Leopard x86 builds?

Also, can I put both on the 320gb drive in separate partitions? Does each need a different format for the drive?

Thanks a lot.

Anybody have got it installed on this board ?

I think the integrated graphic could be a problem.

Here are some info about the integrated GPU:

00:10.0 VGA compatible controller [Class 0300]: nVidia Corporation Unknown device [10de:07e0] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA])

Subsystem: Giga-byte Technology Unknown device [1458:d000]

Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22

Memory at e2000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)

Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable)

Memory at e3000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable)

Capabilities: [48] Power Management version 2

Capabilities: [50] Message Signalled Interrupts: Mask- 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-

So 10de is the vendor (nvidia)

and 7e0 is the device id.
