I expect that I worded my thoughts incorrectly. rolli59 is correct about the onboard capabilities for video with current mobo configurations. I believe what I'm really looking for is that mobo package that will be best for video, as opposed to gaming which I really don't do on my PC anymore. I want the best bang for my buck mobo configuration(cpu, mobo, mem, vid card) I can get and I figure that there have to b e some good ideas here on that. I want to be able to pop a BluRay disc in and get no jitter or pauses on playback anytime. What I have now jitters on a 720p avi file, that's why the new build. Thanks everyone for whatever feedback you have.
