For those wanting DirectX 10 (support) for the cheap can now turn to integrated graphics and since AMD and Nvidia will not release such things until next year, you're stuck with Intel's G35. The new chipset comes with the not so improved Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3500 and is offered by Asus in two flavors (read motherboards) - the P5E-V HDMI and P5E-VM HDMI. Both boards feature support for 45nm CPUs, the 1333 MHz FSB, DDR2-800 and have six SATA ports and 7.1 channel audio. The difference comes in format and expansion slots - two PCIe x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode) with Crossfire support for the P5E-V HDMI while the P5E-VM HDMI has only one x16 slot. Both boards have one VGA and one HDMI port.
