Re: Low to mid range GPU for mATX....?
errr um the HDTV out is old crap for old analog tvs. Any videocard with DVI can connect to a HDTV with a DVI out. HDMI and DVI has both the same quiality (Digital) so you won't be missing out anything.
More memomy will only help with higher resolutions and textures. I read Starcraft 2 might release a DX10 version, mabye go for the 8500GT.
If you can play smoothly right now, why bother upgrading. Get a new videocard when SC2 comes, you'll have more better choices for videocards.
