    Thanks... I found this, clears it up a bit. Beyond the support for the latest Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi supports the powerful Intel HD Graphics processor integrated in the latest generation of Intel Core processors. When the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi is paired with Intel Core processors with Intel HD graphics, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi becomes a powerful home theater PC platform with premium Blu-ray playback capabilities. Intel Clear Video HD technology with AVC/H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 hardware decode delivers smooth video playback of high-definition sources, including Blu-ray, while new xvYCC color and HD sharpness technology delivers crystal clear visuals with stunning precise colors. New dual video decode technology enables the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi to decode Blu-ray picture-in-picture content using the graphics processor, freeing up the CPU for other tasks. H55-ITX-Wifi Review

    Thanks for the quick response. So if I understand correctly... To enable a H55 Express that is "Intel® HD Graphics ready" I need to buy a CPU that has is + GPU. Limiting me to: i5 6xx ??? Full Specs of the Motherboard are: Zotac-H55 ITX-Wifi

    It's finally time for me to build up my new HTPC. I'm looking at the items below, not after a gaming machine, just a dedicated box to share files and play 1080p .mkv etc. Case: Lian Li PC-Q08B Motherboard: ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi (H55 Express Based) RAM: GeIL GV34GB1333C9DC 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 CPU: Intel Core i5 760 (Quad Core) or CPU: Intel Core i5 650 (Dual Core) HOWEVER: After doing some research, the fella here: mentions that a H55 Express based M/B and i5 760 won’t play nicely together. I'd like to keep the PCI-E port free and use on-board graphics. I'm somewhat confused as to which is the better choice for the setup. What’s he referring to?
  4. Looking to buy a graphics card, new or second hand for a multmedia PC. My options seem slim given my requirements, but surely something suits? Requirements: 1. Low Profile 2. PCI-Express 3. TV-Out (via S-Video or Component) 4. Windows 7 x64 compatible drivers (I guess Vista x64 would do) Any suggestions???
  5. Hi Guys / Gals, I like the new feel of the HP TouchSmart PCs, nice easy to use interface thats ontop of Vista. BUT I dont like the idea of having my home PC attached to the back, no room to move in regards to performance. This leads me to my question, does anyone know of a site, source etc where I can get info on a DIY upgrade. Looking to buy a new 22" Samsung 2232BW and would like to mod it to have TouchScreen ability. ??? Cheers
