I want to build a decent home theater PC - doesn't need to be top of the range, but must be capable of playing Blu-ray discs (with the appropriate software - I have AnyDVD HD and also have a Blu-ray drive (I'm so broke I need to buy a component at a time ...... )).
Which ASUS motherboards are likely to be prime contenders to do this? Doesn't need to be 'the best of the best', but anything suitable for perfect Blu-ray playback is fine by me.
Perhaps, in order to keep costs down (I ain't rich!) one of the 'older' motherboards like the P5Q-EM ?
The PC will be plugged into my Samsung SyncMaster 2032BW monitor, rarely used for games, but will be used a lot for web browsing and the like, as well as playing DVDs and Blu-rays during the long, dark evenings.
