Seriously though... if he's basically getting a card just for the sake of getting a card, wouldn't one of the $100 8800GT sales suit?

Or since it's an HTPC, what about a passively cooled card like this one... NCIX.com - Buy ASUS GeForce 8500GT PCI-E 459MHZ 512MB 128BIT 667MHZ DDR2 VGA DVI HDTV Out Silent Passive Video Card - EN8500GT SILENT MG/HTP/512M In Canada. ?
