I just wanna know if this VGA is good enough for one HTPC connected to a fullHD television for 1080p films and that king of stuff. Anyone have it? It works fine?
Thank you all!

I don't have one, but from what I understand you could get by with less than a 5670, even a 5570, or one of the 4600-4800 series cards if you don't mind a lack of DirectX 11 (which does no good playing movies anyway).

Yes, it will more than adequately playback your HD content like Blu-rays flawlessly. You might want to consider a card that is passively cooled in an HTPC to reduce overall noise output.
