Believe it or not, but the best core/md motherboard I have found (out of 3 different ones) is the ASUS P4P800.
Its a single core 2.6 ghz system with 1gb ram, and a 1 TB drive.  The video card is an old AGP Nvidia 7600GS card.
I have also tried other newer micro, 2 with HDMI or Component ports, but the video playback sucked and found other problems with the hd audio port (one was an XFX 630i, and the other was a new Gigabyte motherboard. 

I have to admit that I am not a very good linux troubleshooter. But time will probably change that.

A lot of motherboard is currently not available on Market, How about what kind of chipset is more preferred?

We may want to be more specific on what "good" means.  Something that works good for Standard Definition tv may not work good for High Definition tv.
