I have a 6200 and currently using the DVI-HDMI to my plasma. XvMC works
great on this card.

I've been on the list for a couple of weeks now and it's becoming apparent
that many people consider the nVidia GeForce FX5200 based cards to be the
gold standard for MythTV boxes.

Now, I've been whether the 6200-based cards aren't considered equally good.
They're passively cooled and have a faster RAMDAC than he FX5200, but the
memory interface is only 64 bit. Both have all of the outputs one is likely
to need.

Both cards cost also around the same, so I'm going to pick one up. Is there
a compelling reason to prefer the FX5200 chipset over the 6200?
