I am confused with this 7.1 DTS-HD and intel's 1080p video.


A year ago it was simple: you had to have a good processor, good video card and a very good sound card to have a 7.1 audio.


Now with Clarkdale its all mixed up.


So what i am confused about is do i still need a video card? is there a H55/H57 mobo with integrated video?


Cheers

Andrew

The video "chip" is integrated into the new core i3's and select I5 cpu's. The board would still need to have the physical ports on it (hdmi, etc.).


You can still add a graphics card to most (maybe all) of these boards as well.
