I am buying a computer from a friend for my first project. It is a core 2 duo with a cheap motherboard. I am going to upgrade to an i5 2500k. The computer is running a Radeon 6950 1gb graphic card, a network card, and a sound card. I was looking for some advice on a motherboard.

I want a motherboard with an hdmi out on it so I have a second one. for my TV.

So I am thinking about this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128498.
