There already is dedicated on-board video with the motherboard... You need to choose a SATA DVD drive to get better performance...'streaming videos'... I'm getting $565.81 with free shipping...

It'd probably be cheaper if you just ordered a system off Newegg and built it yourself, and it'd be a better system on top of that.
