I have had a heck of a time finding an nVidia card for my HTPC that will work in my setup, which is:

Sony Bravia XBR5 46" LCD TV
75 feet of premium HDMI cable w/amplifier
Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
Asus M3N78-VM Mobo

So far, the only card that works is a PNY 9800GTX+, but the extra power connector won't allow the top of the case to be put on!

Does anyone have a similar setup and has found an nVidia card without the extra power connector that works? Alternatively, has anyone found a card that has the connector at the long end of the card?

Thanks,

Paul

Yeah, any of the lower 9000 series should work for you. Find one without a fan, like a 9400. If you need HDMI output and you cannot find a card that has onboard HDMI connectors you can always get an DVI to HDMI adapter, which some cards even include in the box.
