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.
I have a ATI650 right now and a Nvidia 7600GT with HDMI. I've heard great things about AVIVO and the pulldown detection. I might have to give one of those ATI cards a try.
