Im looking at purchasing a video card for my pc to record and view FREEVIEW | HD. Also to play games on. Has currently i have wintv haunnapage nova-t tv tuner stick and using on board graphics. But the pc is not upto freeview succsfully via this way. Yes i know it is the video card(on board graphics lol. didnt have the money for a graphic card when i built the pc lol). Which is why im planning to purchase a new video card. But i want to do my homework and purchase the right card.
How would you guys rate this card for viewing and recording freeview on, i believe it does do hardware decoding cause atm i am doing software decoding. Also im not sure , is this card capable of the full hd sound via the card. Incase later on i plug it into a hdmi tv.
what do u guys thinks of these cards: XFX PV-T95G-UDF3 Geforce 9500GT or http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=5725
What known problems is there with these. or what other cards are there that are under say 160-170.
Thanks in advanced
