My System Specs


I like this - powered straight from the PSU. Great!

If you had the room you could even mount one to the outside of your HTPC case to address possible internal heat issues, all you would need would be to run a power connector from an internal 12V molex to the power input of the mini amp.
I've read the description a few times, and aside from the 3D aspect I don;t see what's different with the other cards?

With some of the cards that do FM or OTA TV you may have to get a manual switch between the two as I believe the one I linked only has one connection. Though how hard would it be to add in a source switch for those two?
