Default Video card for HTPC

Hello!

I am looking for a video card for my HTPC that can do 1080p on my HDTV. I suppose local (Montreal) would be preferable.

Could always just grab a 750 Ti for $120ish that would be enough for htPc and it's sips energy not guzzles like a hummer 3.

Energy consumption is definitely something to be considered however 120 $ is very expensive for something that essentially just needs to play 1080p movies on a 50" screen IMO.

I've got a little HD 6670 that would probably do the trick. $40 shipped?
