No one?

No one has a recommendation for a way to increase the gaming performance?

Anyone? Thanks for any replies! : )

Yes a better video card would help with gaming. Are you a fan of Nvidia or Ati, knowing this will help us help you.

I don't think Nvidia has anything that can compete with the 5750/5770 for medium gaming and low power consumption in an HTPC.
