The thing with the 7100 is it will be perfect for a HTPC that required the video chip, fully featured hardware 3D support, but not much more than that. It also allows you to use DVI, S-Video etc, which you don't get with an onboard solution.

I bought my 7300GS for this very reason. Its never run a game in its life, but it does everything else, including running XGL from time to time, and 3D visualisations.
