Back when I was researching processors over a year ago I was reading that Sandy Bridge processors couldn't properly display 23.976Hz and every couple minutes or so there would be a pause or "hickup", then resume and it was mentioned that the issue would be fixed in Ivy Bridge. For this reason I decided to use my old gaming rig as my HTPC which has an e6300 C2D and I got a GT430 to handle the video. So my question is would an Ivy bridge processor be a much better option for HTPC use if the issue has been fixed over Sandy Bridge + the GT430? Or Would the GT430 still have better video performance then the integrated 4000 intel graphics? I do have a SB i5 2500K and a Z68 board that I wanted to make my main HTPC rig and to save on energy I was going to try and use the integrated graphics, but i may grab an Ivy bridge if the issue has been resolved and my power consumption would benefit... My HTPC runs 24/7 so power savings is very important to me as well as performance.
