Nearly identical. I went with the e6700 processor and the 7950 video card.
On the tuner, I was torn between the cleaner look of internal vs having 2 pci-e slots available for expansion. Ultimately I decided I rather be more expandable and went with the external.
Did you do internal or external, and why?
I'm hoping nVidia chose not to release their drivers because they want to make sure all the functionallity is there and working right. I'll settle for no hardware acceleration of video playback in the short run, if I get more stable & capable drivers in the long run. Still its annoying to hear ATI drivers are coming along faster.
If the thing can play & record (2 channels) at the same time out of the box, I'll be pretty happy even if the picture quality isn't the best, as long as it gets there eventually. I'd probably even setting for recording 2 channels & playing one back on the extender, if I had to.
