im looking for a video card that will work well with mythtv. i currently have a 7300GT. im very pleased with its performance, but the fan is quite loud and im looking for a fanless solution. Needs: Fanless PCI express x16 low power consumption (equal or lower than 7300GT with comparable performance) low heat (in a small form factor case. only fans are the CPU and PSU. its a BTX board so the cpu fan blows on the vid card too) you can see the case layout here (big pic!) http://hondaswap.com/gallery/data/500/riley_077.jpg im kind of at odds with myself. on one hand i want to go with a lower performance card for lower heat and lower price. (cant seen to find an fx5200 in pci-e and fanless) and on the other hand i might want a better performing one at the cost of more heat and price because i may want to do some games (NES/SNES/N64/PSX emulation). do i NEED a better vid card for this? or can the 3D stuff be done in the CPU? like how you can avoid XvMC with a better vid card. also lately ive been focusing on vid cards that are 128-bit. how much difference does it make in a mythtv setup over a 64-bit memory interface? any help or opinions are greatly appreciated.
