I'm wanting to get a new video card. I can't see what the AIW gives over the 9700 that makes it worth the money UNLESS the tv tuner and video capture (it does that right???) are good quality. Can anyone tell me?


I do want to do some vcr->dvd burns, so I need a video capture card. I want the highest quality (w/i reason) I can get though so if the AIW isn't it, then please tell me.


also, how is the bundled software? worth anything?


thx

In any reviews you read you'll find people give top marks to the AIW line. The benfit of getting the AIW 9700 pro over just a AIW 9000 Pro is the gaming performance. If you dont or wont be playing games on the HTPC then you shouldnt spend the extra money. By all accounts the AIW tech is exactly the same on the 9000 and the 9700 and they both use ATIs new Theater 200 chip. On the other hand if you want to play Max Payne or Freelancer or Doom 3 on your 100" screen, then go with the 9700 and you'll get the very best of both worlds.
