Have you looked around Newegg ? You can probably find something there to fit the bill.

Whats your budget?, if you want to spend about 100 the TA790gx 128m is the way to go, if you want to spend less a good 780g chipset would be fine.

Sorry to derail a bit, but Tresh, have you used the integrated graphics much? Are you/can you run hybrid xfire with your card? How do you like it?

I was thinking of getting that board for a htpc build and I'm curious how well the onboard graphics could handle the hd playback. Not really going to be used to game. Was also just looking at the 780g's

780G/790GX handles HD pretty well, actually.

The 780G's and the 790GX's IGPs are the only ones that I know that don't struggle at HD even if integrated
