Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months, you're probably aware of all the new offerings from AMD and Nvidia in the ongoing war for videocard supremacy. Sometimes though, spending upwards of $300 is either not in the cards (pun intended) or just not necessary. Both sides have been filling in the niches below their top of the line graphics cards and that's where the HD4670 from AMD and the 9500GT from Nvidia come in. These cards are targeted at the below $100 market and may just be ideal for a HTPC setup. Speaking of which, the SilverStone ST45NF 450W power supply is a low-noise PSU due to its fan-less design and quiet operation is a key factor in a good home theater PC build.
