Ran d3 beta on medium settings on my htpc without a hitch. High settings it started to bog down once the fights started increasing in size. Runs fairly quiet. Can barely tell the htpc is on while playing any type of video.
The 2GB version won't give any benefit unless you're running super high resolutions or 3 monitors. If you're doing that, why go with a $50 video card? I would say it'd work well for HTPC, but it's overpriced & overpowered for just decoding video and underpowered for running games. If you want an HTPC card, go with the cheaper 6450. If you want to play games, spend a little more and get a 6850.
