		Actually *displaying* 1080p is not that hard. The "hard"
part is decoding the compressed stream, which has nothing to do with
your graphics card.

7050PV onboard graphics card and I have no problem with watching 1080p

	Thanks Dean...I've been looking at this board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138061 , which
has the 7050PV.  I'm currently running SD (probably use the SVideo Port
for that), but liked that HDMI port for future upgrading to HD.  Thanks
for confirming that as a viable upgrade path ;-)

Interesting boards.  I tend to stay away from BioStar because years ago
I heard they were second tier junk.  Has their quality improved?
