I wouldn't put too much stock into a HDMI port on my motherboard.
Just my 2 cents, and please do read reviews. Normally, for quality
video and sound, you'll buy a sound card and video card. The issues
that were mentioned seem more relevant. Namely, sata/pata ports,
firewire, usb, PCIe vs AGP. Basically a tradeoff on price, if that's
a concern. If not, you could get one of the new Gigabyte boards.
Maybe the X38T-DQ6 or something like that. Beware DDR3 memory is very
expensive, and myth doesn't yet need a hugely powerful cpu, but it
could help transcodes.
