Which motherboard for AMD Sempron 3000+?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I am putting together a HTPC around an OEM computer that came with an AMD Sempron 3000+ 2Ghz processor. I am looking at buying a new motherboard for the computer though, because the mobo that came in it does not have any kind of PCIe slot. Only AGP and regular old PCI. So it kind of needs a new mobo for me to get a decent PCIex16 HDMI card in there, that can do audio over HDMI.

Or should I even bother doing this to this PC? Can the Sempron processor handle what I am wanting to do? I mainly just want to stream hulu from the net to my TV. I already have a blue ray player hooked up in the form of a PS3. That, and I just want to set up my first HTPC just for the learning experience. So anyway, which mobo would you use for this task? I am looking to do this as cheaply as possible.

Although you might want to consider something a little better than a sempron. I'm no HTPC guru but I think that a Sempron may be a little too weak for what you're wanting to do.
