HTPC Video Card Selection

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently the HD 4870x2 in the HTPC is getting a bit old and unfortunately a bit loud/noisy/hot for the HTPC and I am looking to replace it. I have selected the following from a list on a website and I would appreciate some assistance/help with determining which one to purchase.

ASUS Radeon HD 7750 800MHZ 1GB 1125MHZ GDDR5 DVI HDMI DP HDCP PCI-E DX11 Video Card (HD7750-DCSL-1GD5)
ASUS GeForce GT630 810MHZ 2GB 1620MHZ DDR3 DVI HDMI D-Sub HDCP PCI-E DirectX 11 Video Card (GT630-DCSL-2GD3)
Gigabyte GeForce GT 610 Silent LP 810MHZ 1GB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 DVI HDMI VGA PCI-E Video Card (GV-N610SL-1GI)

where are you at and can we offer anything else as options? My point being is that for a htpc those you can get a 15-30$ card and be happy.

Edit: It is running a 1080P TV and I would like to ensure that those video cards have enough VRAM to decently handle it.

Tom's Recommends the 7750:

This card is nice if you don't need multi displays as its dvi-d(worthless)http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121439

I don't know much about the nivida low end cards so i cant recommend one of them but i have a 6450 in my htpc and it works great. No $15 sales at newegg.ca:mad:
