My apologies for bumping such an old thread, but hoping if any previously contributors are still around they might be able to help seeing as how this a kinda an outdated and pretty much discarded format.......... or so it seems from my searching online.
Buddy of mine has a HP DC5700 desktop, 2.2 core duo, 4gig, we had hoped to turn into a budget HTPC for him. This thing has an intel Q963 chipset with a ADD2 PCI-E X16 slot and a pci-e x1 slot.
Looking at a prolink HDMI add2 card which I believe will be compatible. Research seems hit and miss as to how well these work.
In this situation, the add2 card should perform better than a pcie X1 video card... correct?
Any input appreciated. Thanks!
