I've been pretty happy with my HTPC (as has the fiance) but one thing I'm noticing is the 29/59 (or in my case, 29/14) framerate bug. It's not on every channel (nor every show) but I do notice it. Most commonly I see skin tones changing (a sort of flickering).
Currently I have an AMD A6-3500 with integrated Radeon 6530 and no dedicated graphics card. I've been looking into possibly getting a cheap graphics card like a Radeon 6450 as this seems to be one that has less problems with the 29/59 bug. Here's my question: would it be worth it to spend the $30-40 to get the graphics card or is it just not worth it? Specifically, I"m trying to make sure that getting a graphics card would actually fix the problem or if it's just a crapshoot and not worth my time/money.
