I have a single Zotac ZBOXHD-ID11 mounted in a mobile cart for driving 
an ancient projector for small classroom learning environment.  Not sure 
motherboard designation but CentOS 6.4 upgraded from 6.3 plays very 
nicely.  This is a 64 bit system.  Not much help and I am having 
difficulty seeing all your requirements being met in an ITX form 
factor.  FWIW, Intel N10/ICH7 chipset, atom quad core CPU.
