On the other hand, any newer Nvidia/ATI IGP (9300/HD3200) does almost everything itself without the need for a high-end processor.
The 4500 will stream 1080p no problem and the cpu is by far not a roadblock imo. I've used an amd x2 4200 and 3800 to stream 1080p with no issue, no lag, etc, plus the 4500 has decoders built in that help.
