Is it used for gaming too? If not you can cut your budget way way down.

no gaming, just a htpc for movies and tv series

also does the current video cards have built in audio chips? i remember awhile back that you would have to get audio from the onboard sound header off the motherboard

Yes. I'd probably look at something like a passive HD6450. I think it should do everything you need though you might want to confirm xbmc compatibility for all the audioengine stuff:

looks like around $60 here.
