What is the difference on these card? Are the TV out equal? Will I notice better picture qualty and DVD play back on the 7500. This is for the HTPC computer I am building, I will not be playing games. Also I wanted to use it as a PVR, should I just get an AIW 7500. Or one of the ATI cards and a seperate PVR card?


Thanks

Can't answer all of your questions, but I went with the 7200 for my HTPC due to it's passive heat sink compared to the 7500's fan.


Fan=noise.


My HTPC is soley for DVD and audio - no gaming, etc.

I have had both the 7500 & 7500aiw

both provide for DVI as well as VGA output

don't use the Tuner and kind of like 2 outputs on 7500 myself


I did try an OEM version.....

Quality of Picture was not as Good as the RETAIL version

and it was a ATI manufactured card (had lotsa pixel errors in DVI)

Just saw a $50 rebate at BestBuy last week

Since they are bringing out a new 8500 they will be discounting 75's


I watch mostly ACTION/Concert DVDs

Hooked up to a LARGE HORN SPEAKER SYSTEM 120watts/channel

so the LITTLE fan on the 7500 would be like a
