Thank you, Tom. I know this is a question that's likely to come up so that would be appreciated.

And the more I look at that nVidia 450, the more I'm liking what I see. The only wrench that can be thrown into that decision is the AMD 67xx cards. This is truly awesome to see the competition shake out like this.

I just wanted to let people know that these boards might be good options for those who want to have good gaming capability in their HTPC. If gaming performance doesn't matter to you, the GTS 450 would be the better choice at this point.

Does Cyberlink and Nvidia with the new card/drivers support checkerboard output?

Just another blank signature.

Agreed, although for pure HTPC use I think the 430 (and lower) will probably be of greater interest. The 450s I've seen have been dual slot cards w/ external power requirements. No way to use that w/ my pico PSU

For HTPC, we're supposed to see the GF108 Nvidia-based cards within a month or two and I've read the 6xxx series isn't far behind.

Yup. Very exciting time for us HTPC owners. I'll be buying in a month or two, so, I'll have some pretty awesome choices.

I'm doing the same. Right now, I'm using the i3 GPU, but the lack of follow-through (or gross oversight) by Intel on the proper video refresh rates and the desire for new bells & whistles plus improved video processing is driving me to get one of the new discrete HTPC cards when they come out.

I've got a 4850 in my HTPC that's really too big for the machine in terms of heat, plus the fact that it doesn't bitstream, so, I'm looking to upgrade. I now have a receiver in that room to connect it up to HDMI audio, so, I'm ready for a new video card anyway.

Samuri, i say you never prefer LP cards coz they are working very noisy.
The problem is cards need some power cables to be connected on so as to be silent
So if you are buying a card, check out if there is a power cable input socket on it.

The nVidia 450 has one 6 pin power connector. That's not bad. All the reviews I've read say that heat on that thing is very well managed and very silent, as well. I recently discovered that I COULD put a dual slot card in that machine (tight fit, but, it'd work) and I'm a huge fan of those as they can shove the heat out the back which would be good for that case. At the moment I'm very seriously considering a 450. I want to see what AMD has with their 6xxx cards, but, nVidia may win me over on this one.

Yup, I agree. We'll see if I can hold out til the 6xxx cards are out. My 4850 is not overly liking the new tasks I'm having it perform in the new configuration. Heat is definitely becoming an issue with it as I use it more now for movie watching in the bedroom. And because I've been messing around with the configuration, I'm running into some other problems I had with video when I first set it up. It took me DAYS to get it configured to work the first time. I'm really just wanting to get it replaced and get it over with this at this point. The 450 seems like it'll be a good card. We'll need PDVD to get updated and TMT to get updated.

Just one connector and the lower price,
if (say) 430 will have a connector i would definetely prefer it.

Players PDVD and especially TMT need immediate updates but i love WinDVD since i don't have any issues on bitstreaming with both cards and any drivers with Corel. (PCM streaming another thing btw - i mean downsampling )
BTW what i don't like with Corel is i had to bought it twice since it allows one copy on just two machines. (Me? How many disks i use, just guess? )

I do occasionally like to game on that machine, so, the 450 seems to be the sweet spot for me. PhysX support, DX11, etc. I'm really considering it. Heavily.

Yes, if you don't play games like me that might be the right address. (430 or whatever?)

From the Nvidia GTX460 thread. Which "tomorrow" were you refering to?

The Standards use the word "should" where conformance is expected unless, when applying professional judgment, circumstances justify deviation.
http://www.theiia.org/guidance/stand...ull-standards/

Auxiliary verb indicating a lesser obligation to comply with the main verb that follows. Used when there is recognition that although bound by duty, there may be circumstances that warrant not proceeding as stated.

Excellent. It specifically mentions the 460. I assume the 450 is covered as well?

1) It appears all newer versions of PowerDVD output at video levels (16-235). Is there any way to change it back to PC levels (0-255) via a registry entry or similar (since there's nothing in the player settings.) I'm using an ATI HD4670 on WinXP. Also why have the player colour controls been disabled? I know this can all be fixed in the driver settings but that's not a good solution since it'll mess up every other video application

The problem I think is for ATI cards. There are several fixes and workarounds, depending on what series and driver version.

Anyone with Powerdvd set to bitstream HD audio having audio issue during the previews (which are Dolby Digital)? I cant describe the sound but it's awful. If i go into audio settings and set it for DD/DTS or PCM, the problem goes away. It's a pain to change back and forth just so the DD parts playback properly and I still get HD audio.

My setup is:
HTPC HDMI ---> Onkyo Receiver ---> TV

This is on Powerdvd 10 Mark II
and ATI 10.7 drivers

Is this with the latest patch released yesterday? If not, I've not had that issue. I simply get "DD+" showing up on my receiver for DD previews.
