Default Multimedia

I want to build a new rig for multi-media usage. What is a good/decent motherboard and processor combo?

whats your budget? get a 8400 gs or something similar there meant to run hd videos and multimedia work, it reuns better than the 8600 gt for much cheaper, a good 2 gb of ram and a 2.2 + dual core would be fine i would recommend AMD but they will all work.

Wow, that is exactly in my price range. But you are right about the motherboard. I will look for others.

Thanks!
