    Any reccomendations on a video card for an HTPC that is around $100? I have been looking at some of the ATI Radeon series video cards, but am looking for some other options unless this is the best card for this application. Thanks.

    The Radeons are said to be the best for DVD playback. I saw the Radeon 7200 for $90 today at a local computer shop; the Radeon VE card would work nicely also.

    I have the Radeon VE and playback is pretty flawless. ATI was given great reviews in a recent mag. I think it was the perfect view that did a write up on HDPC and compared the Radeon cards to the NVIDIA Gforce cards and acording to this guy the Radeon blew the Nvidia cards away in all cats.
