I know that the 5770 is a superior card but is it worth the extra money over the 5670 for HTPC use only. Will the 5770 improve my HTPC experience. I will be downloading, watching internet material, as well as watching OTA material from tuner card.

If you aren't gaming you don't need an HD5770 so go for the HD5670. The HD5570 would also be a good choice and is slightly cheaper.

If you're not doing any gaming, you shouldn't be able to tell the difference between a 5450 and a 5770. But obviously the former is more power efficient.

would the onboard graphics on a h55/h57 with i 530 be equivalent to either of these. I know some have talked of using this combo in a HTPC, i just do not want to be limited. What affects transcoding speed

The 5770 runs hotter so the fan will be louder. I would get the slowest card that does what you want to reduce heat and noise if your building a htpc. A fanless card would be ideal.
