thing is..the new nvidia cards are coming out right?..
buh right now..i have on board video...
so jus wondering if i do get a tv wonder card will the picture quality be bad cuz its onboard video..(mobo in sig)
IF you just want to watch TV on the PC then the winfast cards are cheap and work fine. I bought an all in wonder years ago and it's useless now becasue i've upgarded vid cards 3 times since then. if i'd bought a stand alone (which I did this winter) i'd still be using it. If you want to record high resolution video none of the cards I've seen (all-in-wonder, avermedia, winfast) cut it.
Don't get a 9600 pro now go with a 9700 pro or 9800 pro. The 9600 pro barely cuts it for last years games and will be challenged by the new stuff.
As for 128 meg memory on the card. It's plenty unless you do 3d modeling or graphics work. The next generation games may or may not need the extra texture memory. I haven't heard anything definite yet.
Oh and if you decide on an all in wonder wait another month or so. New model cards are coming out so the old card prices should drop some.
price drop i love those words..lol..i think i'll b waiting a while now..maybe even get the newer cards if there is a better price/performance...thanks everyone for your help..hopefully the newer cards are out in a month..that would be very nice
I have the Ati Radeon 9800 Pro All In Wonder, and I love it, I would never watch TV on my PC unless it's through one of these. Quality is nice, and it's great to be able to use the remote, as well as turning the PC into a recorder. It will go nicely into my HTPC when I move it down the line.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
