My main HTPC's graphics card hung when watching the V8s over the weekend (must be made by Falcon ), then would refuse to start upon reboot, so was running 640x480x4 bit. Swapped it out for an identical Asus EN-8500GT from my client machine, & both worked: for a time. It now won't start in the client unit. So am using the 6150 on-board until I get a replacement for my main unit.
Question is...what. I would prefer to stay nVidia so I don't have to do an OS reinstall. I want a factory silent model & it has to be minimum 9400GT to combat the raised 1080i issue with newer Mediaportal versions. It is also critical for it to fit inside my Silverstone LC-14 HTPC case.
Haven't done any measurements or research as yet. Thought I would post to see what others are using, & incorporate suggestions into my research. Cheers.
