Howdy,

I am not going in the Marines yet. I will go to college early. June 25 to be exact. So, I am going to go ahead and upgrade my card. the one thing is this...

I want to play my xbox and VCR through my computer monitor!

So I need tv in.

I DO OVERCLOCK VERY HEAVILY :D

So I was thinking one of these...

Nvidia 4800 (4600 revision)
Ati 9500
Ati 9700

Im guessing the ati would need to be an all in wonder. But arent the only AIW the pro versions?

I want to keep it under $200

TIA


Please don't say "nvidia for life" or "ati for life". Say what you think would be best.

Right now Im leaning toward the nvidia card.

I got Nvidia knowledge covered. I am looking towards ATI people for suggestions on a possible radeon.

buy the radeon and the pick up a hauppauge tv pci card.

YOu can get the hauppauge for as low as $20.

I want a new Graphics card anyway. So no PCI please.

I am definately getting a AGP with TV in

This ti4200 is nice but it would lag in my system.

No way .. if you overclock heavily you need the 9500 non pro and the hauppage ... seriously ... the pro does not like overclocking!

A viable option that is jsut a bit out of your budget is the Radeon 9700 non pro version, only 7% slower then the Pro version and a heck of a lot less for price. I think it'd be very much worth your time to check that out.
