"WE RECENTLY saw several Nvidia partners who were touting their new Personal Cinema solutions and these new products will bring you a nice remote, and a new external tuner that will be plugged into DX 9 cards this time round.

It was about time that Nvidia made this product work on some other API than DirectX 7. That was because of the Geforce 4 MX that was the only solution until recently and this card was definitely not good enough for most of the gamers, especially these days.... FX 5200 and 5600 will give you reasonable speed that will be good enough for most users, certainly in the case of the 5600, and nice video features are always welcome."




Anyone have experience with the NV Personal cinema? And what did you think?

It's ok- equivalent to the AIW stuff, but...It's not HD. There's no excuse for not including HD tuners now, especially on ATI's part because they produce HD tuners of their own.


As for gaming, the 5600 is still inadequate compared to similarly priced ATI cards. If you look at some of the benchmarks, it's comparable to the Radeon 8500- pretty sad for a $200 next-gen part.
