    I'm looking to build a new HTPC with a far more powerful processor than my current one so I can play WMV HD material.

    The ASUS P4R800-V Deluxe looks a nice mobo with a built-in Radeon 9100. I know nothing of this model, it's DX8 only so presumably is like the 9000 or earlier, which isn't a problem but I wonder will it included the hardware-assisted MPEG decoding that makes the Sonic drivers and TT so excellent in their results?

    This is the first mobo I've seen with an integrated Radeon 9-anything, are there any others worth looking at?

    I have read your HCPC postings with interest. Any chance of you selling your current machine on classifieds if you decide to upgrade?

    Sorry if off topic.

    Yes, forget which one, supports P4s .. however I've ditched the idea because there's no DVI.
