I currently have an i3 530 in my HTPC which is the first gen of their HD graphics line (HD1000 I think). It's used almost exclusively for viewing/recording TV using WMC.

I recently upgraded my TV from a 61" DLP to a 120" projector. I've been noticing a lot more artifacts in 1080i programming (CBS in particular) - things like horizontal lines, etc.

I was wondering if adding a GT430 would give me better deinterlacing on such content.

I understand that if I watched more mkv files there'd be a definite improvement being able to use MadVR, LAV, etc, but what about recorded TV? Is spending ~$60 on a passive GT430 going to be worth my money?

Why not just get a GT430 and try it? No one is going to be able to give you a definitive answer. I'd say there is a fair to good chance the GT430 will be better, but you won't know until you try.

I don't have Intel but I can tell you that interlaced content looks great on my ATI 5450. It does Vector adaptive deinterlacing which is the best and lines and everything else looks smooth. Basically cable box quality at least. I had a lower end graphics card before that did not do vector and the quality was not as sharp. You can get one on Newegg for about $25 these days.
