OCInside show us this motherboard's features:

The Foxconn A690GM2MA 8KRS2H MicroATX motherboard offers with the new AMD 690G chipset an onboard graphics solution with DVI and Sub-D VGA ouput, as well as internal TV-Out connection. The ATI Radeon 1200 series is by far not comparable with current PCIe video cards, however it offers sufficient performance for office applications and thanks to the provided Microsoft Windows Vista drivers it's possible to build an inexpensive Vista based PC platform. There're some deficits regarding overclocking, but this shouldn't be essential to build a HTPC.

Read the full review at Overclocked Inside:

The Foxconn A690GM2MA motherboard (model 8KRS2H) offers one PCIe 16x slot, one PCIe 1x slot and two PCI slots for conventional extension cards.

Furthermore it offers one IDE connector for up to 2x conventional ATA 133 HDDs and 4x SATA II connectors for newer HDDs which can also operate in different RAID modes.

The Foxconn A690GM2MA-8KRS2H can be equipped with up to 4 DDRII memory modules and the memory is expandable depending upon operating system used to maximally 8 GB. The allocation for the DUAL Channel memory support is indicated by colored DDRII slots and this is absolutely necessary, because a motherboard manual is not included and the quick reference guide doesn't contain descriptions about the correct memory assembly!
