I have built HTPC's using M3N78-VW Asus mobo's with onboard 8200 video and the results are good for everything ... even blu-ray, using windows 7. This mobo uses a nvidia chipset but I was not able to get sound thru HDMI using ubuntu or mint about a year ago ...
If you don't plan on gaming, there are onboard solutions which really work well.
I used a AMD x2 7750 cpu with 2 GB ram btw.
