  1. 8400GS is much better. It can play HD Movies without a hiccup. I own an ASUS Silent 8400GS on my media center and it works fantastic.

    (although it is running Hybrid SLi with mobo)
  2. Games? *scoffs*

    ...maybe if you are playing at 1024x768 at low settings, sure you can do a little gaming...
  3. No, The 3000 is better look.
    It has the performance of the 4550.

  4. sorry wrong question but intel i5 2400 comes with intel hd 2000 so i still stay with my 8400gs or use hd2000

    Yeah, the 3000 is only in the K series chips I believe which actually makes no sense. The K series are the chips that can OC and to OC you need a P67 motherboard which cannot use the integrated video. The H67 boards can use it but they cannot OC. I dunno what Intel was thinking there.
  6. GAMING:

    That CPU is capable of handling TWO of the best graphics cards such as 2xHD5870 or 2xGTX580.

    The cards you mention have almost no modern gaming potential. I'm looking at my games list (about 40) and didn't see any that I thought would be playable with those cards.

    If your going to spend any time gaming then you should spend at least $200 on a graphics card. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one:

    NVidia GTX 560 Ti

  7. MOVIES:
    If possible, enable hardware acceleration (in software). Software I use:
    VLC, K-Lite Codec Pack, Boxee

    MEDIA PLAYERS:
    WDTVLIVEHUB or Boxee Box

    WDTVLIVEHUB can play DVD ISO (with menus) from its internal 1TB hard drive as well as other media. I think BluRay works too. Boxee Box needs more software updates, but it is good and will be great. Best addon hard drive is a WD 2TB Elements (on sale for $90 to $135).

    I have the WDTVLIVEHUB 3TB (1TB internal + 2TB Elements) and have my BluRay rips (MKV) and DVD ISO's etc filling the entire space. I really love this device and negatives are small. If you have a large video collection go with WD; if mainly net-based (Netflix, YouTube etc) go with Boxee Box.
