And for a minute there I was actually thinking if I could SLI two of these PCIe x1 cards together...

"The cream of the crop is the GT 240 with its 96 Cores, 128-bit memory interface and 1GB of DDR3 memory. This one works at 550MHz for the GPU and 1340MHz for shaders. Unfortunately, Sparkle didn't announce the availability date or the price of these cards but we are sure that they might end up in an HTPC system or two..."  | more

For HD playback on a HTPC, I think it will be great. The x1 interface won't hinder the performance.

thats what i was thinking, i am wondering why they would even make such a card? Maybe to upgrade older pc in other countries?

Ill stick with my current one when i build the htpc. My current rig is gonna go AMD Vision BLACK....as soon as my wallet can get some green.

I think the 1x would limit the card.

I was corrected earlier, these might actually be nice cards for HTPC. Could use a secondary display for touch screens.
