Default Best onboard graphics?

My mom has a socket AM2 OEM board from an eMachines that she needs replaced. Almost everything onboard quit working, so we're replacing the board and power supply. The processor is a 4450e, I believe. I'm needing best board that has more than capable onboard graphics, preferably something that can withstand BluRay. She does play some games, and so does my dad. They aren't graphic intensive, but would still like them to run more smoothly. So far I have looked at boards with the 8 series, and the 3200 series.

For AMD, 780g or 790gx has the best onboard graphics.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

^ Indeed. The HD3300 is out now I believe, I think that's the best you can get. Not too shabby, either. You can run Oblivion on low settings without too much trouble.
