I know everyone is using the integrated graphics these days but I'm thinking of upgrading my current gaming PC and using that as the basis for a HTPC build. So I'll need a video card.


I would like to bitstream over HDMI. Don't really need 7.1 right now, but I'd like the capability.


So are there any standout cards that will do this with no problems? Seems like all of them have HDMI these days but I know that not all work well for HTPC use.

3D or no 3D?

Don't care about 3D, I'm not a fan and my projector doesn't do it anyway.


My current video card is a Radeon HD 6870, which I'm sure would be fine. But I'm keeping that in my gaming machine. And it's a full length, double width card with a fairly noisy fan.
