OK I finally got it together and a basic config. I am very pleased with the quality and performance with the new $29.99 ASUS 3450 HDMI.

The specs:
ASUS A8N-E
AMD FX-55 no OC
ASUS 3450 HDMI
Corsair DDR 3200 3-3-3-8
Raptor 36GB for the OS
HITACHI Deskstar 400GB
LG Blu-ray/HD DVD-ROM
Hiper 580 watt PSU
SILVERSTONE SST-LC17-B

I played. My camera sux but all the movies looked awesome.


Hellboy-Blu Ray 50% CPU usage tops.

Transformers-HD DVD 60% CPU usage tops.
