Ok guys, the HTPC i hobbled together 4 years ago from an old core 2 duo and various other parts from round the house is finally taking its dying breaths.
As such, i am in the process of setting up the parts list for a new build.
Where i am having a conundrum is with the video output. I would like to have a higher end HTPC dedicated card like the ATI 6570 primarily due to its ability to post process images (de-interlace, nosie/artifact reduction, etc etc). Im not concerned about the cost of the video card so much as the rest of the hardware in the chain.
This HTPC is part of a home theater in my basement. I'm outputting via HDMI to a Marantz SR7005 Receiver, which has an Anchor Bay ABT2015 10 bit Video Processor. The Marantz is then outputting via HDMI to a Sony VPL-HW30 Projector which also has a video processor (or it might just be an upscaler). Either way, am i wasting my time by post processing the image before it gets sent to the Marantz Receiver to be "post processed" again?
