    Default Gigabyte GV-N84STC-512I Rev 2.0 8400GS

    I am trying to find a video card that is adequate for a Snow Leopard HTPC setup and that can also support two monitors (so it can serve as a light duty PC as well). This card looks interesting and is cheap, but there seem to be many variants of Gigabyte 8400GS cards and I want to be sure it will actually be straightforward to get working. Compatible hardware lists don't generally have all the extended model numbers, making it tough. Does anyone have a sense for whether or not this would work? Thanks a lot.

    Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N84STC-512I Rev2.0 GeForce 8400 GS Supporting up to 512MB(128MB onboard) 64-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

    I have since discovered that Gigabyte shares model numbers between products. The Rev 2.0 is meant to distinguish them. Apparently this particular card is a shared memory design which can give some headaches (although I'm basing this on a single post I found so it may be inaccurate). Given my (low) level of experience, I should probably keep looking.
