    they will be hooked up to my HTPC in my specs. The i3 oboard graphics HDMI to my Yamaha RX-V571. I already have 1 Definitive Pro 1000 Center and two Boston Acoustics. It already sounds great DTS with 3 speakers

    dont trust intel onboard anything. Mine suck. Cant even handle onboard HD reliably. Get stuttering all the time with DXVA. If you want HD make sure to disable DXVA with onboard graphics. Just saying it sucks and don't HDMI audio output.

    EDIT: SD DXVA works fine, and if DXVA is all you do 720P works fine. 1050 stutters thoug hand anythign n second monitor even MS games makes a n abhorrent experience.

    Mines the 1156 socket. The Onboard Intel HD graphics rocks. 1080p Dolby Digital, DTS thru HDMI and yes disable DXVA. I tried a 5450 and the onboard was actually better.

    Got the Polk speakers today. Sounds great

    There alright speakers they change them slightly every year and as you know newegg do some crazy deals on them.

    There subs mix very well with their speakers although if you like more thump (PSW10) than rumble(PSW505) get the 10" as that will give you a tighter bass.

    They sound much much better with a sub they pretty much need it.


    I been wanting to pick some up with 6 1/2 - 7 inch cones as i don't like subs all that much and like the bass come from the front speakers you tend to feel it more.

    I haven't run a sub so I guess it 5.0 for now. But not sure if I need it. Two reasons. 1. I'm trying to be respectful the neighbors and 2. I'm a little hard of hearing in the high frequency range so I don't need allot a bass.

    You will enjoy them even more so due to cost.
