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?
