Computer video cards for home theater pc
going with the xfx hd 5770 from ati. has audio in 7.1 or in trueHD with a decoder/receiver. something that the nvidia cards lack.
i think this card will give me a good balance between game performance and video performance on a 40"+ LCD
another option would be the gtx 260 super clocked from EVGA, then used the SPDIF and hook it to the motherboard which will be a MA770T-UD3P with the onboard "8-Channel ALC 888 onboard 7.1 sound with 6x 3.5 mm connectors (1x optical S/PDIF out, 1x coaxial S/PDIF out, 1x int. S/PDIF in/out, 1x int. Aux, ext. Line in, ext. Mic, ext. Front out, ext. Side out, ext. Rear out, ext. Center/Subwoofer)"
question is, the hd5770 keeps it simple for video, although the gtx will perform better for games and is having the SPDIF 7.1 really that much of a sacrifice over trueHD? couldn't i just upgrade to a stand alone sound card if thats what i want in the future?
any experience with playing computer games on a tv? do you hate the wireless keyboard and mouse?
i guess this all comes down to how serious of gamer are you? hd5770 for more movies then games or gtx 260 for my movies then games.
ive seen your other posts man, you're pretty much a piece of shit, get over yourself. - charmander
I used to hook up my gaming pc to my dad's 50". It was difficult on such a large screen and the lag of wireless really pissed me off. And the size of the screen doesn't matter, it's the resolution.
