PC with bluetooth audio?

I am in the market for a new PC and I want something that I will be able to connect bluetooth headphones to for listening to audio.

I currently have an all in one PC so when I connect my bluetooth headphones, they connect to the all in one unit, so my question is, if I get a standard desktop PC with separate monitor and speakers, is the bluetooth capability built into the tower, the monitor, or the speakers?  In other words, what should I be looking for to make sure I can use bluetooth headphones with my new system?

Well, you need bluetooth capability to begin with. Get one of those tiny ones that plug into a USB port.

So PCs don't come with bluetooth already built in? It came automatically with my AIO.

Depends on the motherboards

So the bluetooth option is built into the motherboards? ecollegepc recommended this to me - ASUS Z87-PRO (Intel Z87, HDMI, DVI, 3xPCI-E, 8xSATA, 4xDDR3) It doesn't appear to mention bluetooth anywhere and I can't find any motherboards on their site that do.

Most motherboards don't. But, bluetooth USB adapters are pretty cheap,usually around $12-$20.

Thanks. Maybe I'll just get an adapter. I just realized I could also use it with my TV.
