looking into building an htpc for the first time and am having trouble finding either a motherboard or video card that absolutely does audio as well as video over a single hdmi cable to my plasma tv remotely located.
all feedback is hugely appreciated.

Not sure what you mean? Do you want a motherboard with onboard/intergrated video? Or a system with a graphics card which usually means a more powerful system?

Checkout the links below, The first one was built for a family member
It connects to any TV with HDMI input via one cable & both audio & video is sent through the one HDMI cable

The MSI 890GXM-G65 is a real nice start to a powerful HTPC

The next HTPC (in the link below) is my own latest HTPC & it connects to my 42" LED TV via HDMI for the video but I choose to run the audio to a Pioneer VSX-521 via SPDIF/Digital optical cable
I am sitting on the lounge typing this reply on my 42" TV using the HTPC shown below>

Not sure why you would want the audio & video running through one cable? I mean it works fine but.......Can you add a bit more to your question?
The way I see it is you have spent all the money on the video quality (Big screen/Plasma) when a movie or even a good TV show is made thousands of dollars is spent on the audio, It just does not seem fair to spend say $500-$1000 on the video (TV) & use the crappy speakers in the TV that are worth probably $5ea
All I am saying is that you are missing out on half of the "Home theater" experience without a surround sound reciever/amplifier
