I'm waiting for two things to occur before I buy one:

* A fanless GT 220.
* A consensus of sorts that _________ card is the one to go for, as
  developed for the Asus 8400GS at Newegg in the early days of VDPAU

The third thing would be a definitive report on whether Advanced 2x is
visibly superior to Temporal 2x, but I'm not expecting one; some
people say yes and some people say no, meaning that result will vary
for every viewer.
