HI all,

I recently got a HTPC with an Intel GMA 900 on board video rig but its just not up to the job, can anyone recomend a card that will fit into a PCI Express x1 low profile slot preferably passive cooled and can handle blueray?


PS i am in the UK

i don't think there is a pci-e x1 card that can handle bluray. the only two x1 cards on newegg are radeon X1550;s. which i wouldn't wanna use for bluray. you shouldn't have gotten such a bad IGP for your HTPC. getting a new motherboard would probably be your best bet.

Can you tell us exactly which MB you have? Or, failing that, how many and what type of expansion slots do you have free?
