AMD Athlon II X3 455: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103911

MSI 785GT-E63: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-266-_-Product

Yeah. Likely a typo on Newegg's part.

Actually, the onboard ATI graphics does more HTPC-wise than the 9800 GT. The 9800 GT only have PureVideo 2 support which only does partial VC-1 decode acceleration. Meanwhile, the onboard HD 4200 video on the 785G motherboard does full decode acceleration of MPEG-2, H.264 and VC-1. H.264 is usually more common but there are several Blu-ray titles using VC-1. Harry Potter, I'm pretty sure, uses VC-1.
