Not to tick off the nVidia fans here, but ATI (or AMD now) has better decoding of HD video buit into the cards. I would go with a Radeon from AMD and get something in the 4670 or 6450 range. Even that 4350 Loves got is a good deal for HD.

That is unless you plan to play serious video games, then you need to spend a bit more on the card cause these bottom line HD cards are made for HTPCs, not for gaming.
