I'm considering building a new pc, that will be mostly used for internet browsing, and prehaps occasional gaming, but was thinking about adding a sweetspot card and turning it into a video processor as well. The screens it will be feeding will be a 17"tft via either vga or dvi, and a jvc p37 or d40 via component, at 576p or 1080i. Now the questions: What graphics card would you reccomend for flexibility, image quality, and connectivity? Some games performance would be nice, but as I rarely play games this is not a major factor. Really its the x700 or 6600 ranges I'm looking at. The 6600gt seems to have an advantage with its onboard video processor, but I haven't seen any comparisons of the two in regards to HTPC use. PCIeX would be the format utilised. Would sweetspot create any lag? In other words, would the audio prove to run out of sync with the video? The proposed setup I would be using would run the rgb scarts to my pioneer 301 amp, which would handle the audio as well as acting as a scart switch, then have the rgb scart output to rgbs input on the sweetspot, which would then process the video and output to the TV. Would using an x card to input the sweetspot, and using dscaler to process, be that much better than using a software dvd decoder and nvidias onboard video processor in the 6600 series? The rest of the system would be based around an overclocked 939 winchester A64 3200/3500+ at 2.4-2.6ghz,1gb or ram at approx 250-260mhz (500-520 effective ddr) at reasonable timings, and a large NCQ enabled 7200rpm HD. Also what software should I be looking at? Thanks in advance for any suggestions you could put forward.
