Perhaps not the cheapest one. I just upgraded FX 5200 to 6200, both
passive cooled low end cards. The HW deinterlacer for progressive output
(720p in my case) is much better in 6xxx and 7xxx nvidias imho. In FX
5200 it was not really usable. With interlaced mode the case would be
different but there the problem with cheapest cards to get 1080i over DVI.
I'm not yet 100% satisfied with HW xvmc + de-interlacing with the 6200.
The load in system is very low, only some % and the system is running
really cool but I get video flicker (some black lines for a fraction of
second) with DVB subtitles. Also the OSD has some very small vertical
judder probably due to deinterlacing. Any ideas to fix these with x.org
and xine settings?
