I am converting a Dell E310 into a basic HTPC and am looking for a video card that will work best with the setup and achieve the goals listed below. My motherboard only has PCI slots available (not PCIe) so I am limited in that respect.
P4 2.8Ghz CPU
Hauppauge PVR-150 tuner card
80GB HD (will upgrade this later)
Windows XP MCE 2005
-Record standard def TV shows via Motorola cable receiver with s-video, component and composite TV-Out options
-Watch recorded shows and DVDs on standard def CRT TV with component and s-video input options
Add Blue Ray player
Add 50" LCD or Plasma HD TV
Watch and possibly record HD content
Video Card reccomendations would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for suggestions for a MCE compatible remote with IR blaster if anyone has any.
