4350, 5450, 5570 VAD and VFD help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Good evening forumites, I'm currently running an HTPC with the following specs

ati 3870 512mb Accelero S1 r2 cooling
Abit AS78H 780g board
AMD X2 4850e Scythe mini ninja HSF passive
2gb RAM
DViCO dual DVB-T tuner pcie x1
LG BD Rom
Corsair HX 450w
HT Omega Claro
in a coolermaster RC 282 case
Vista 64 Home Premium
1x120mm yate loon
Primary players - MPC-HC, Windows Media Centre, Foobar 2000

I'm looking at getting rid of the 3870 in favour of something more appropriate for an HTPC. I don't want to really use the IGP as it gets a little bit too hot according to my sensors and want to keep this as passively cooled as possible. I'm looking at a 4350, 4670 and a 5450, all choices will get a passive cooling solution. I'm getting a lot of conflicting information about Vector Adaptive Deinterlacing. Some sites say the 5450 can do it but others can't. From what I read the 4670 and 5570 can definitely do it allowing for additional postprocessing, dx11 and bitstream audio is of no concern as all audio runs through my sound card into a 7.1 amp setup. So what really is the best DxVA solution?

Also I'd like to add A VFD to my case,I'm no longer able to find the kit for my case and was wondering if anyone knew of a manufacturer that produces a VFD that fits a 5.25 or 3.25 drive bay?

nMedia makes a yellow lcd that even looks better than my old VFD...
