Exactly. I've recently bought an Zotac 520 zone fanless card and am very happy with it. The MythTV site listed the Asus 520 card as being capable of hardware decoding of all the media that I own and advanced interlace so I knew it would do what I wanted.

My MythTV based media centre now plays video without dropping any frames which used to spoil my viewing pleasure.

I don't really do much gaming anymore, so I have a faster PC upstairs and a Wii...

Next upgrade: more than 1TB storage and a DVB-T2 decoder...
