For a new build, another option in the 4XXX family are the HD4200 based boards with 785G chipset. These give some 4XXX features. However, HD4200 is missing the 7.1 LPCM over HDMI from the discrete 4XXX cards, and at a "performance" level similar to the HD3200.




HTPC: Antec Fusion 430, Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-UD2H F7, AMD X2 4850e, Sapphire 4670 1GB, Corsair 4x1Gb,  Adata 128Gb SSD, WD10EARS Green, LG GGC-H20L Blu-ray, Hauppauge NOVA TD-500, Logitech z-5500, Logitech Harmony 525, Samsung LA40B530 1080p, Vista Premium-32 SP2, Catalyst 10.12(Facelift preview), Mediaportal 1.2.3+OneButtonMusic, AC3Filter, Cyberlink Powercinema 6 codec, BLU-RAY: Samsung BD-F7500

I was considering waiting for this chipset, but the whole fiasco with 7.1 LPCM has put me off. Not much point upgrading from the 780g I don't think, especially when a standalone card gives such a performance increase. The new nvidia cards coming with 7.1 LPCM might be worth a looksee too. Not sure when they're due though.
