Well if you want to use your computer for TV, you'll want a tuner card. So I think you've answered your own question there.

 

Though I have seen some pcie x1 tv tuner cards for sale. I think from connect 3d that use the ATI chipset.

Ok, who here know's much about TV cards?? I am looking for one that will either fit in a PCI, PCI-E x4 slot or a PCI-E x1 slot.

 

The system that it will be fitted into is at this address:

http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...5663#post635663

 

I would like one that had a remote controle so that I can sit in bed or have mates over and change the chanle or vol with out loseing my space to a cronee.

 

Also I would like it so that it can play Radio and Free View. (free) Also so that I can record any tv program that i want while watching somthing els. Also one that can handle Hight Deff /Digitla TV. Correct me if im wrong but you watch tv via your moniter via your gfx cards correct?? If so then it will be going though my cross fire cards so my screen image will be awsome.

 

Please advise me. :D

Good setup. My E6600 is a killer in my HTPC setup.

 

BTW, I do NOT use a TV Tuner card in my HTPC since quality is the name of the game. I use a DVR with HDMI connection to the Aquos (52"). The problem I have with pretty much all tuner cards out there is the quality. DirecTV provides my DVR and the Sharp Aquos decodes for HDTV. The DVR comes with USB so that is where the super large video files make their way to the HTPC or direct to DVD. It's nice because I can do anything else while the transfer is occurring.

Unfortunately we have little-to-no information regarding the new LanParty 775 motherboard, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it within the next two months.

 

(Most likely sooner than that however)

 

Your build look awesome though.

 

 

Don't forget the DX10 NVIDIA 8800GTX/GTS hit the market in a few weeks.

As long as you don't plan on going ape gonzo with your overclock then the Monsoon will do well...link to comparison>> Monsoon vs. Freezone on Conroe

 

If you can live with a max OC on stock voltage and -or- you have nice low ambients it performs quite well...very awkward to mount though so be ready for that little adventure. Just a tad longer screw would have helped a bit as it was hard to get them started while doing a balancing act...
