I intalled two 150MCEs into my MediaCenter box and have been really happy with them. I even run at a lower res to save HD space and it still looks as good on my TV as my standart TV signal. They are running in a Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard without any issues. I had major problems with the 500MCE in that motherboard.
