They are all pretty much the same.  The chip is what is important, not
really who makes it.  Some cards varry, but by so little it really
doesn't make a difference for a HTPC.  If you have an option of buying
one with a fan or without, go for without if noise in the HTPC is
important, otherwise the extra air doesn't hurt.  Mine does not have a
fan, but I've made sure the case fan moves air over the heatsink enough
to keep the card and more important the cards around it cooler. I did
have one fx5200 go bad, probably due to overheating in my old case which
I filled to the max and it couldn't handle that.
