I have old hardware listed below that I would like to use as a HTPC but I don't believe my motherboard is up to snuff. I don't have an AVR, so I'm looking to stream audio and video via HDMI however this motherboard does not include HDMI. Does anyone know of an AM2 socket motherboard that along with my CPU will support HDMI video and audio streaming to my TV? Also, is there an affordable slim case that would work well? My AMD X4 Phenom CPU motherboard has an HDMI port but I'm going to be using that as my media server. Thanks.
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Mobo: Asus M2R32-MVP
RAM: 4GB DDR2
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT
