    Hi All,

    Can anybody give me recommendations for a video card to use with Vista Media Centre. My requirements are:

    1. Quiet (ideally silent)
    2. HDTV capable
    3. Aero graphics capable

    I really like the look of the NVidia chip sets because of their hardware HDTV capabilities and the PureVideo codec quality.

    Anyone got and success (or failure) stories?

    Depends how much you want to spend and what you need it for. I have a ati x800pro not cutting edge but more than quick enough for vista. Id say if your interested in playing games get a directx 10 card, the only ones out at the moment are from nvidia and cost £350.00 cheapest. But to run aero you dont need cutting edge just directx 9.1b compatable me thinks.
