I only do SD, and I got an nvidia card to offload some CPU usage, and
I was completely surprised by how good the image quality is. It is
much better than watching straight from the cable on my TV and it
looks better than my DVD player. The colors, noise, and deinterlacing
are really great. At this point I don't care too much about the lower
CPU usage, I would pick nvidia for the image quality.
