My System Specs

Default Need to replace my Atom 230...

I orginally bought this thing as a basic file server back be before NAS's came with FTP software on them. Anyway it has evolved into a pseudo HTPC, but it's not even close to being powerfull enough to play back any HD content. What's the cheapest mobo/cpu combo with HDMI output from onboard video/audio I can get that can handle 1080P? I'd like to keep using the DDR2 I've got in it as well.

System now:

Intel D945GCLF w/ ATOM 230
HD2400Pro (crippled PCI version )
500GB WD Blue
TT Shark Case (So I'm obviously not limited to M-ITX)
Audigy 2 NX (2400 doesn't have HD audio)
All's well that's Haswell
