    This is certainly the better choice. If you can not get a gt220 without fan go for a 210 fanless. The video engine is the same. Nothing is more annoying than active cooling on a gfx card used for a htpc.

      Thank you very much.
      I got a discount for the Nvidia GT430 (Just a little more expensive than GT220), I'll go for it.

        came here to say this.

        can you please point me to places where i can learn more about this? trying to decide if i use vlc or xbmc-core

        Does this mean i would have decent video acc with nvidia OSS? i don't care much about power consumption and price, but i'd love to be able to use the OSS drivers alone on my htpc.
        or is this just to point out that ati would be even worse then the already bad nvidia oss?
