    Hd 2600 Xt

    Hopefully this is posted in the right forum, but here goes.

    Just wanted to give friendly advice to anyone looking for a great HTPC card, just got HD 2600 XT 256Mb DDR4 from Gigabyte, connected it to a HD plasma display via HDMI and let me tell you, with the picture this thing is producing ATI has outdone themselves.

    HD playback is really smooth, no stutters or lockups, and the picture is crispy clear, sharp, absolutely the best I have seen so far, and I did see a few.

    Great picture even extends to gaming, where this card (with its obvious limitations in complexity and detail) performs great and provides picture quality that makes my eyes (and mouth) water.

    The best thing is that I got it for some 170$ (here in Europe, converted to US currency) which in my opinion makes at real bargain.

    Hope someone else makes use of this too.
