Plenty of X2 motherboards out there too.
I would forget the hiperspeed processors even
if your planning to do Hidef cos itll be the
gcard that will do the job effectively.
On top of the passive CPU you could use an
onboard VGA/ DVI and it would be down to
the power supply making noise, again you can
get noiseless ones
