What card would be the best for both dvd playback and gaming? I will be doing both equally and want the best all around card for my HTPC. I think im going to be buying the AccessDTV and Audiophile 24/96 for it also. Thanks for you help!!

Hi Greg:

___We have discussed this at great length … If you are going to use Windows 2000, do not even think about the Radeon just yet. If you are going to use 98 SE or Millennium, you can get by with a Radeon but be prepared for some problems with certain games every once in a while and do not expect equivalent performance, compatibility, or stability of the GeForce2 GTS or higher from the 64 MB DDR or below Radeon. For DVD playback however, the Radeon is currently “Best in Classâ€.

___Good Luck
