I'm trying to find a full size AM3+ board with build in Video. I have a 3 display setup and I'd like to run it with one video card and one integrated hdmi port. Did everyone fall off the AMD bandwagon?

I've not seen an AM3+ motherboard with built in video either. I assume AMD wants you to use a discreet video card with those boards, as they market them to gamers and power users. The Trinity FM2 boards are geared more towards HTPC use anyway and do come with integrated graphics.

AM3+ compatible CPUs don't come with an APU so a motherboard maker would have to add on a GPU that most likely will not be up to most users expectations.

ASUS M5A88-V EVO is one of the few AM3+ full ATX mb with integrated graphics. (Integrated graphics is not so good for video playback, however.)

I had a Gigabyte 785GM-US2H and it was great. I could use my videocard for the monitor and the built it HD4250 chip on the board to output video to my TV. It did great for video. I decided it was time to go up to DDR3 and repurposed the AM2+ Gigabyte board. Now i can't find a worthy upgrade.
