How much does the mobo effect video playing and editing?

Hi everybody, i'm building my first computer. I plan on doing a lot of streaming movie and TV watching on my 720 32' LCD TV, along with photo editing and video editing. I was planning on getting a mobo thats hdmi capable, but if i;m using a video card that had an hdmi port, do I need to worry about the mobo's effect on movie watching?

Here is my plan, tell me if the 2 x hdmi port is overkill, or if i can open my options up for potential motherboards that don;t include HDMI options. (BTW i'm building budget, trying to keep total at around $550)

    If you are getting a discrete GPU you don't have to worry about the motherboards integrated and you can buy a board with none. The performance is going to be based on your discrete GPU and CPU.
