We consider computations of linear forms over {\bf R} by

circuits with linear gates where the absolute values

coefficients are bounded by a constant. Also we consider a

related concept of restricted rigidity of a matrix. We prove

some lower bounds on the size of such circuits and the

restricted rigidity of matrices in terms of the absolute value

of the determinant of the matrix.
