 Also, looking from the specs and the card itself, since it consumes less than 75watts of power, no PCI-E power cable is needed, which is a Plus for HTPC, or low-end boxes.

I wonder how this wouls work in my HTPC, I am in the market for a new graphics card as the 3200 series card I have now is getting a little long in the tooth.

Doesn't a 8800/9800 GT perform better overall in most games? I don't even like the look of any DX11 games yet.

...but I remember when that size fan on a video card used to be considered "huge."

 Of course it's not going to pull off 80 FPS in dirt 2 maxed out with DX11 at 1920x1080, but think about smaller resolutions, say 1280x1024.

I wasn't arguing against that, it's just that competing cards are a better deal if ATI sticks with the $100 msrp. ATI plans to make even weaker and smaller cards too in the future (5500, 5450), and I can't help but wonder what the point is other than office eyefinity situations. Otherwise, DX10/10.1 cards can do the exact same things that these cards will be making. I can only assume better energy use otherwise. Oh well :)

:edit: Further reading makes me take back the above, the 54xx passive cooling cards will make excellent HTPC cards. So, I guess there is a point :)

 Oh no I wasn't saying that you were arguing :), just stating my opinion, I wonder if those 5450 and 5550 are going to be low-profile for HTPC's, that would be sweet.

But Tom's Hardware posted their review and the card should be dropped $15 or so before its worth buying before its competitors. And the DX11 usage is basically not worth it with a card that weak
