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