new HTPC specs

AMD Athlon X2 5200+ 65w 2.7ghz + Stock Cooler
MSI KA780G
2GB Crucial DDR2 800
Samsung SH-S203B
250GB Hitachi SataII
500GB Maxtor SataII
no dedicated vga card

Any recomendations on a VGA card with HDMI that will do 7.1ch Audio over HDMI?

XFX have a few entry level Nvidia cards with audio pass through and a proper HDMI port.

What do you guys think of this? Would the CPU be able to play HD video well? I don't plan on watching any blu-rays or anything. This is just anime and emu's only really...

No real anime is available at 1080p and I got a PS3 for Blu-Ray.

Don't 6600GT's have Video Accelerations?

all the suggestions here look great. my two cents about HTPCs from my experience is stay away from 780G chipsets. Inadquate northbridge cooling and artifacts!
