I think I have one, maybe two PCI expansion slots. I like playing video games but the existing intel 82915G/GV/910GL express chipset just isnt fast enough.
I'd like to be able to get a video tuner/capture, etc card like the ATI Visiontek xtasy theater 550 pro MCE/PCI/PVR/TV-FM Tuner/Video capture card (w/remote) while still getting Visiontek xtasy Aadean 1300 PCI video card for enhanced gaming play action etc.
Can you install more than one of these cards? Will the Visiontek TV theater Video card help with game play or are they completely separate issues/cards/functions? I find it ironic that I may not be able to do both on the same machine... short of getting a new machine that is which is of course another option - ie new mother board... the list keeps getting longer and longer.
Also, I read somewhere that there is a PCI-X standard that allows for faster bus thoughput from the same 'slow' standard pci slot and that these PCI-X cards are supposed to fit into the 'standard' PCI slot. Does anyone know anything about the availability of any PCI-X cards... I couldn't find any examples.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
