[mythtv-users] Decent, Inexpensive Video Card? (Yes, I did search)

It sounds to me like the fx5200 is more than sufficient, and it  
sounds like in general, DVI and TV out works properly. The fanless  
part is a really nice feature, as the less heat and noise generated  
in my machine, the happier I am - and less issues with cooling. The  
cost is just great as well.

So now, the question:

Can anybody find reasons why I *would not* want the fx5200 for an  
HDTV-based MythTV box? I am not planning to do anything major with  
this box except play 720p and 1080i HDTV streams, and perhaps some  
transcoded MPEG-4 versions thereof.
