If on a budget:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
If not on a budget
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Not much between them the more expensive one has slightly better onboard sound and more internal sata ports and usb headers. It also supposrts faster ram but that doesn't really matter as the speed it offers is not worth going for at DDR2.

I am little confused by what your going to be doing with it most 1gb graphics cards are high end gaming cards why would you be using low resolutions and graphics detail?

and dont get a low end card with that much storage, for example 8500gt 1gb ddr2, this is no better than its 512 version.

Well at high resolutions gaming it would be, but seeing as the 8500gt isn't a gaming card it is a media centre card the gain would only be 9fps instead of 7-8fps which is negligable.

The 1gig 8500 is the dumbest card ever made. There is no way it can use that much memory.

The 9400gt 512mb would have essentially the same performance as the 1gb version.

Somehow, I don't think GTA4 will work all too well on that card. If you're going to be gaming, grab something better.

And no card in existence can run Crysis. </dryhumorjoke>
