Yes it is, but
* the CPU should have some potential for undervolting
* configuration on speedstep i hope i can tweak

I hope to get some potential for easy converting/whatever??? and have a 
not so hungry CPU otherwise (i read something like 8W idle which matches 
my current CPU which i used last years and it should idle most of he 
time assuming vdpau works as expected)

I don't have experience on this and its not a concern for me, but maybe 
still give you some facts:

* the cards all have an audio pass trough, no connector though
* the card reports to have an audio device
* this audio device is not supported yet, but some people reported 
success to at last get it recognized with some patches, not sure if its 
working for anyone allready
