Running xbmcbuntu , currently have an ati 5770 but I want to replace it as it has a fan and is too loud. Want something silent.

Is it correct that nvidia cards are much better in linux based systems as I had been thinkning of getting a ati 6450 before I heard this.

If so what card should I get, one that does good quality deinterlacing for live tv?
???

nVidia GT430. There are fan and fanless models available. The GT430 offers nVidia's best deinterlacers, at a pretty reasonable price (around 60-70 USD).

thanks, reading around it seems the gt430 or gt520 with the 430 winning on deinterlacing.

Can it handle 1080 interlaced okay?

The 430 has enough shader units to handle Advanced 2x deinterlacing of 1080i content while the 520 can't (from what I have read). I have a 430 and it works great.

Definitely go with an Nvidia card. I have two of them myslef: an Ion system than can do Temporal 2x on 1080i, and a GT240 that can handle Advanced 2x (the GT 430 didn't exist yet when I got this card). In my brief experiments with an ATI card (E-350 integrated video), the only de-interlacing options I had when choosing VA-API were One Field and Bob. Nvidia looks to (still) be the king when it comes to Linux HTPC use.
