I may have missed it, but what video card was used? Im interested in a HTPC build since I recieved my 55" Mitsubishi HD set, but I dont know of any video cards that have component monitor output, and my TV/reciever dont have DVI :(

You can find that information on the Testing page (if you look closely, it says integrated graphics)

I was looking at the Antec fusion earlier this summer when I was considering building a HTPC. There was only a silver model available, so I was going to wait for the black version. Looks like it's finally out. Definitely going to be looking into building an HTPC again now that this beauty is available :D

either the ATI HD 2600 series (sapphire HD 2600XT has HDMI and component outs for $100 at newegg) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814102700

or if you want nvidia, the 8600 GT series (MSI 8600 GT has component & S-video outs for $100 at newegg) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127293

both NV & ATI have HD cards available that will hook up to your HD set.

from those two I'd go with the 8600GT, as it's faster :)

there are also DVI to HDMI adapters.
