Difference between gaming and HTPC??

Looking for at what point and what size card my HTPC would be considered a gaming PC.

I have been looking at 7750 (require no extra power) but notice that it'll "play" just about any game out there. Maybe not on Ultra High at some outstandingly awesome resolution or anything, but it games.

When are the small 6 series cards coming?

I need something that takes a lot less power though... HTPC but I want a card that'll be just under a gaming rule of thumb. And not real expensive.

Something efficient would be the best, and for that you usually go for the smallest fab size: 28nm. The 7750 fits perfectly, 7770 is another option. They use a max. of 49W and 84W respectively.

Edit: Older gen stuff that uses little power: HD6670 (57W), HD5750 (71W), GT440 (65W), GT430 (51W), but of all of them I would recommend the 7750 or 7770.
