My System Specs


What about one of the new trinity APU's from AMD? These are perfect for your needs. They have dedicated graphics on the cpu, so there will be no worries about sluggish video playback and they are power efficient, etc, etc.

AMD A8-560K APU Quad Core Processor Socket FM2 3.2GHZ 4MB 100W Retail Box
100 bucks
ASRock FM2A75 PRO4-M mATX FM2 A75 FCH DDR3 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 1PCI SATA3 HDMI DVI USB3.0 Motherboard
79 bucks

Motherboard availability at NCIX is not great at the moment but newegg or memory express may have better selection.
