Default gameing and ht?

i wanna just sit on my bed and watch a movie, surf the web, play games, and download bookoo's of vid pics, and music. for a monitor i wanna use my LG 47" flat screen. i've been searching for a motherboard with hdmi. i would like to keep this intel compatable. is it possible to have a killer ht desktop good for games too? for audio, i wanna use my yamaha ht reciever. anybody have any suggestions? sorry... i'm new into diy computer building. here's the motherboard i was most interested in. even that one had some neg reviews. i'd like to run a fairly fast processor. one in particular is the intel quad 2quo 2.66

Asus P5E-VM HDMI LGA775 Motherboard - SALE PRICE: $159.98

the AMD motherboards will have much better onboard graphics than the intels. but, if you want use intel, that mobo is pretty decent.

don't bump your thread after 5 hours... we will get to it. We aren't online 24/7

Philbar's build will be great. Just pick whatever case you want. You might want to consider a blu-ray player too since you want ht and youre going to be using an hdtv for your screen
