    HDCP video too, but big whoop. The price/perf is at the bottom of the barrel.

    Great. My 2 generations older HD3870 chews up your 8600GT. Whats the point?

    I think these cards will do pretty fine in a system that does not require 3D applications.

    It's a card not for the desktop and not for gaming- it is for HTPC's (as the reviewer did a convoluted attempt at highlighting- gaming bench's are irrelevant). And to put out a low watt, low heat, low profile card that does TrueHD, DTS Master at 1080p is remarkable. And that for $49 a pop is even more amazing.
