HTPC Motherboard/CPU suggestion
I have a system running with an Intel D2700DC Atom D2700 Mini-ITX motherboard and the Ubuntu OS. Everything works great for my original intentions of a NAS Drive with other home server duties… However, I now want a more HTPC friendly system.
When I play movies full screen via my monitor, the system is smooth enough. But when I run the system via the HDMI output to my TV the whole system is very sluggish.
I want a smooth system without sluggish behaviour when playing 1080p HD movies using the HDMI output. Would the Gigabyte E350N-WIN8 be a desirable upgrade? If not, which mini ITX Motherboard/CPU could I get?
