The MA785GMT-UD2H motherboard has a lot going for it. It is relatively inexpensive at 89.99 on Newegg as of this morning. For that price you get the full package including the best featured integrated graphics on the market, High Definition Audio in the form of the Realtek ALC889A CODEC, low noise with no fans on the NB, and a decent performer to boot. HTPC owners will love the fact that the integrated video and sound can play back full lossless Blu-ray with ease and do it without a noisy, hot external video card. Performance is exactly in line with the previous motherboard I tested with this chipset, with only small performance differences typical of two different benchmark runs. The board overclocked pretty well almost hitting 20% stable overclock with no voltage modification, which is pretty good.
