J - I'm guessing you know this, but JIC, heads-up: Depending on what you need to do, you might need to read-up on the version of the PCIe cards/slots, too. That is, I vaguely recall needing/wanting to be PCIe ver 2 and that all the PCIe x1 cards were ver 1. That lead me to buying a PCIe x16 v2 card...only after I bought it I learned my MB's chipset didn't support v2.0 for x16 and I was hacked off.

I can't recall the timing, but this may have been what finally got me to spend the money on the Oppo BRP...

Yep I realize that. I just happen to know of a PC with a spare PCIe 1x slot, and I was thinking a 1x video card to add HDMI out. The PCIe 16x slot is only v1.1 compatible so basitcally an old 256 or 512mb card but it's hard to find with HDMI out

How about a FX3800? They seem to be plentiful lately, on the local used market.
