I had been running a Sapphire 1950pro until my water block cracked and leaked on it while I was away for the weekend......

I'm currently running a x600 as a loaner while I decide if I want to pick up another 1950pro, or wait to see what kind of offerings we get from the mid-range r600s.

X1900XTX and X1950CF Crossfire set-up. Pleased with that set-up for 2 months or so. Now, when R600s will get released ... ill buy 2 and make crossfire (if actually possible) I might as well need a new motherboard and power supply so ill buy them.

I ran one of the early rageII AIWs and I'm convinced that the tv quality of that board was superior to the great majority of current lower-end tuner cards.

Can't beat an integrated solution as far as I'm concerned.

You are right. Mine is doing good for TV capture and it allows me to even play some demanding games like Prey . I should run 3DMark and see what scores I get with it.

True, the 9800 pro is an amazing card (i had one). i also have a REAL old ati card. you know the one with the mouse port on it :).

As for tv quality the AIW series does a pretty good job but i love my pvr-350 to pieces nothing like hardware mpeg2 compression :)
