No, a GT220 is sufficient to playback 1080i content with the Advanced
2x deinterlacer. It's 3D performance isn't much better than a
8/9400GT, but it's notably better for VDPAU.

The GT240 is a bit of a weird product - its closest relative is the 2
and a half year old 8800GT, being essentially the same but
manufactured on new processes that allow for lower power draw. Point
is, it's a light-gaming card, not an HTPC card.
