GPU for 2d, and it auto-switches to nvidia/ati for 3d content). is this how
this board works, or is it just an embedded PCIe graphics card that
overrides the core-i GPU?
if so, i'd want to look into it more before purchasing.

if it's an embedded PCIe card that is used for everything, then thats not
bad, but i'd likely opt for a cheaper board (Asrock H67M-iTX), m350 case,
ram slow i3 and maybe a 32gb SSD. would be ideal for a frontend, or USB
tuner FE/BE system with network storage.

i dont like this thread - i've been following it from early on, and i soo
want to upgrade my noisy-when-cpu-is-loaded BE/FE with something quieter.
the itch is getting worse :S
