So I bought this BareBone H61 (ShellShocker, $59.99) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856119065. My question is does the H61 chipset support QuickSync? If so, I'll probably build another i3-3225 HTPC, if not I'm going on the cheap and using a $40 Celeron. The 35 Watt Pentium chip at $75 is also on my radar. This one is for the bedroom so I don't need anything fancy. Thoughts? Suggestions?

That's very likely this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186216. I would look at the manufacturer's site for CPU support. QuickSync would be a function of the CPU AFAIK.

Close, but no cigar. The Motherboard is the H61SP and has a much more HTPC-centric choice of connections, including 8 channel audio, HDMI and eSATA:

I looked into it further, and it's actually an H67 chipset. Here's the MoBo: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=motherboard&U=en-us0000515 eek.gif
