I recently purchased a new computer, its a quad core 3.6ghz with 8gb ram and an added Hauppauge 2210 tv card, it only has an onboard graphics card so obviously this doesnt play freeview hd, mkv's or even avi's very well.
So i need some advice on what kind of graphics card to install, it currently has a 350 watt power supply, i would prefer not to upgrade but i will if it will be beneficial, also have one pcie x16 and 2 pci slots free.
I'm running windows 7 and media center seems to have everything i need.
I won't be gaming on it so the card really only has to be able to play freeview hd and 1080p mkvs flawlessly.
I will be doing a little bit of recording but it will mainly just be watching freeview.
I've searched these forums for similar threads but most of them were fairly old so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
