    This set up will be just for viewing 1080p rips and mkv's, and No gaming.

    How would a 3800+ handle the nvidea 8200 on board igp w/ 2GB ram?

    1080p would lag, with high bitrate rips quite severely. 720p would work alright.

    Realistically, it's the graphics at fault, not the CPU. The 5050e will still struggle with high-end 1080p.

    For High-def, it takes a seriously powerful CPU to do it. The GPU does have a hand in it, thanks to modern codecs.
