Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H, AMD 780G with integrated radeon HD3200
coupled with an AMD athlon 64 x2 5600+
EVGA nForce-630i with integrated GeForce 7150
coupled with an Intel core 2 duo e6500
I think the 780g is a better boards with better graphics but the e6500 would use less power and run alot cooler. I don't want to overclock or play games on this machine. Just play HD movies and listen to music, as well as rip movies and music.
Another thing is sound quality I'm thinking of going for an x-fi extreme music if the sound quality on the board I get isn't up to scratch. Does anyone know what the sound quality is like on either of these boards?
