I'm not sure if my MoBo has PCI 3.0 as it is a 3 year old Clarkdale build.

Decent gaming card. My son has one of these and is pretty happy with it. Handles most of his games fine. Fits his MoBo which is a couple of years old too. Not 100% sure about the 3.0 spec. Way overkill for HTPC though. A $15 card will work fine for HD video.

I want to utilize Jinc in madVR which I cannot do right now with my GT 430. I know a $15 card will work, heck the Clarkdale graphics work and I did use that for nearly a year. I wouldn't even bother with a card at the $15 price point because there would be no gain.

I have this MoBo BTW.

Radeon's make great HTPC cards as well. I've used one since back in the HD2600 days, and have used an HD4670 for the last couple of years. Totally reliable and great pic quality. Just make sure you find an ATI driver that works for everything you need, then stick with it. I'm still running 11.8. No need to change.

that card will run just fine on your board, pcie 3.0 is compatable with 2.0 slot, has ddr 5/128 bit memory and 512 stream processors, should be fairly quite and cool, ive used sapphire cards and never had any problems with em, fair price also.

I have one of these crammed next to a Ceton Infinity. I have no problems with heat and the fans are very quiet.

Madvr Jinc3+AR 23.976 and no dropped frames.

I would check with Renethx if Pcie 2.0 will hurt you in the bandwidth dept.

I am recommended to install this HD7750 for my HTPC, Silverstone GD08 casing with Haswell i7 Intel.
I use HTPC mostly to watch HD Movies. No Games (sorry).

The problem is space limitation, There is only GC with maximum 9" long can be fit into.

Is anyone know a "newer/latest and better" HD Graphic Card for my purpose?

Thanks

Is fan noise a concern? If so, you may want to step up to something with a more substantial cooler, if it will fit. The problem with the 7750 is its built as a budget card, so they don't always equip them with better coolers, and when they do, the 7770 may be similar in price. I'd look at all of the 7750/7770/7790 line and buy the one that fits with the best cooling setup. The 7790 may run cooler but I haven't looked a reviews in a while. I prefer rear exhaust in an HTPC box but it's hard to tell from pics because what may appear to be a rear exhaust could be a shroud that just looks like it pushes air out the back, but it really doesn't.

At 9" you can get a 7770 and possibly a 7790 that fits (Gigabyte has a short-ish 7790). If you are careful, there are some 7850s (XFX single-fan model) that are 8". I should have gone with that, the 7870 in my machine has only mm of clearance to the front fans.
