The HD 4xxxx series does not have bit streaming.

The HD 5450 could do the job. But the HD 5550 / HD 5570 scored a little better in terms of overal video quality scores for DVD and Blu-Rays. I'll see if I can dig up that review.

However, at a certain point "visual quality" becomes subjective as to what actually looks better.

^I think it was the Anandtech review that you are referring to.

The HD5450 is ok for HTPC use but, as pointed out in the review above, lacks the muscle to properly do vector adaptive deinterlacing. HD5550 and above have no problems.
