Which Graphics Card for HTPC?

324 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  SKYWLKR

I am just about to embark on building a HTPC for my SonyHS50. Basically I have settled on the following configuration:

AMD3500+ 939

Gigabyte Nforce4 M/B


I am going to use the a 30ft VGA cable connection to begin with (until the Sony DVI issues are sorted).

My conundrum is whether to use the GeForce 6600GT chipset or the Radeon X700. I am going to do very little gaming - mostly HT (playing around with ZP, FFDshow, AC3Filter and WMVHD). The 6600GT seems to be having lots of issues whereas I have not found much information on the Radeon X700.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Disregard Question. A few well placed searches has come up with the answer.


Seems the best right now is the 6600GT ,what end did you come too?

I wish I could swing a second 6600GT for my HTPC, but I just got one for my gaming rig a couple weeks ago.
