I should warn you that though the ATI 550/650 cards are PHENOMENAL when properly set up with the right software (the included stuff sucks most seriously), they do not much care for nVidia video cards in the same machine. Mind you, for HTPC purposes I think that the x1*** series of ATI cards are superior to nVidia ones because their pulldown detection with AVIVO is better than PureVideo.
If it's not for high end gaming but just for HTPC and stuff I'd pick up a cheap x1300 or x1600 series card to go with the ATI650 Theatre card.
And yes, you can buy them at NCIX now.
