    I just purchased a system with the following specs. Could someone tell me if I can also install and run a ALL-IN-WONDER VE PCI card (built on the 7500 series only 64MB) in my box. I like the features that it has for the TV side and the RF remote that they offer with the deal. I have my box in one room and want to play music and video through the surround tuner and HDTV in another room (about 17 feet away). Looking for compatiblity probs with the nVidia (AGP) VS the ATI (PCI) in the same box. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way?
    Reply from ATI:
    It should work in your computer however we can't guarantee it would work with
    other video card in the system, please note in order to use the TV and capture
    capability the card must be the primary display.

    it should work fine, but you may find life easier using a 3rd party monitor manager
