For those of you who actually looked at yet another bitstreaming thread...
I built my HTPC and didn't think there was a snowballs chance that I would add a SS system before the HTPC needed a rebuild. Well, I was wrong so I'm looking to add bitstreaming to my HTPC and wondering what the cheapest way to do this is. I really don't expect myself to add 3D anytime soon so I'm avoiding that, and I do say that with a lot of confidence, I'm still loving my Panny plasma and not looking to upgrade for some time.
Which one? Both going for $25 after rebate at Newegg (I really hate rebates). The Sapphire is going for $20 after rebate at Amazon. I'm leaning towards the Sapphire just due to the much higher number of positive reviews at the $5 cheaper at Amazon.
Side note: I guess I'll be buying 512MB of RAM at the same time as I'll be able to stop sharing it with the onboard GPU. w00t!
