if your just doing media stuff, then itll be overpowered, plus some htpc cases are cramped. if your not gonna game, id say go for a midrange, passive gfx card :)

I bought a ATI single slot 5750 for my HTPC, can't hear it and i was shocked at how could L4D2 ran on it (and thats on a 1080p 100" projector), i suppose if i had the room (in the HTPC) i might have gone for a better card, but for the amount of gaming i do on the HTPC i'm pleased with the 5750.
