HTPC's are being asked more and more to render frames in-game. They're being used as console replacements. Granted, they often don't need as much power as their desktop counterparts (less pixels on a TV compared to high end, large monitors), but still, a modicum of power is necessary.
Very true, but the same argument could be said about high performance ITX boards; while they CAN be marketed to the HTPC crowd, it will be the enthusiast that purchases this product.

For a HTPC, I would say something along the performance level of the AMD HD 7700-series is probably good enough, almost overkill.
