If I do, it might probably be pick up only. These things are like 4.5' tall.

The 780G chipset looks fantastic and probably out performs the 8200 in gaming, but the 8200 hybrid power feature is impossible to beat if you're putting together an HTPC with a separate graphics card.

If I build an HTPC any time soon I'm probably going to use one of these.
Is there a difference between using integrated graphics and a GPU for an HTPC?

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
