Performance of GT 640 is a joke for the price it sells.

Get HD 7750. For VGA out of HD 7750, get a DVI-I to VGA cable.

fanbois abound.
bet this guy thinks amd cpu's run super-hot.

I dont think anyone has ever been recommended the GT540/GT640 series on tfd (excluding the venerable GT240 and the GT440, the GT "x"40 series has been lol)

thank you friends for your replys toms hw reviews about 7750 is impressive it definitely beats gt g40 in fps comparison by a very huge margin of 50% the difference between gt 640 and hd 7750 is huge ,i am not a nvdia fan boy if amd proved good then i will go for it the difference in power consumption Max TDP is also low only 55w in hd 7750 which is great gt 640 got max tdp of 65 w http://www.hwcompare.com/12822/geforce-gt-640-ddr3-vs-radeon-hd-7750/ what about htpc capability and the of Enhanced Unified Video Decoder 3 uvd3 and pure video hd vp5.Media Espresso do not recognition hd 7970 in hardware encoding many user are facing the problem Media Encoding and the 7970? [Archive] - [H]ard|Forum .The performance of handling htpc content of uvd 3 at higher frame rate are not too impressive according to H.264 CPU/DXVA codec comparison - Core2Duo vs UVD 2.2 - Page 3 - Doom9's Forum again please don't get me wrong now im tilted towards amd.

MediaEspresso now works fine with HD 7000 cards. It was an issue with MediaEspresso + Old Driver. We are 10 months ahead of that time.

Dunno but that UVD thing is a non-issue. HD 7750 will handle every HTPC related thing fine.
