My venerable GT220 card has decided to die and due to case size I need a single slot graphics card. Lots of the current nvidia cards are dual slot due to fans etc.

Any suggestions on a decent single slot HTPC card? Ideally someone in Auckland with stock?

Pretty sure most of the 610/620/630's are using Nvidia reference design so there's likely to be minimal differences other than the cooler between brands, as such I'd place my focus on price and the length of the warranty.

Cheers. I picked up an EVGA GT 610 card and i'm more than impressed with the HDTV support under MythTV.

I'm not currently seeing the card get above 55C which is a lot better than the old GT 220, and I'm using the highest hardware de-interlacer.
