    I would build the machine around the video card. I just need to know what card is recommended that can play the latest games plus perform the duties needed by an htpc. I don't know much about what the new video cards can do. Is there a card that has video in/out, and can play the latest games? I would like to hook it up an hdtv. Is there a card that offers these option and more? Just looking for some ideas.
  6. If your card can play the latest games then your card is superb enough as HTPC... :)
    Like obsidian said, 5770 is a good choice, here as example:

    Of course u can hook it to your HDTV...
