I am now going to ask people who know more than I do
I want to be able to watch, record, pause live TV. I don't know what kind of tv tuner I had before. Can anyone suggest a good one without going broke? I've seen Hauppauge HVR1250 Hybrid TV Tuner; ATI Theater 650 PRO Combo, and Asus/ViXS combo 210 NTSC/ATC. I would be using Direct tv with a set top box.
Then just when I thought I had it down about video cards I began to look and found I know jack! I found these
NVidia GeForce 7500LE 256MB (512 shared)
NVidia GeForce 7600GT 256MB DDR2 Video card dual DVI/TV
NVidia GeForce 8600GT 512MB dual DVI w/VGA adapter
NVidia GeForce 8800GTS w/320MB, dual DVI-I-Dual link TV Out (factory overclocked)
NVidia GeForce 8800GTX w/768MB,dual DVI-Dual link TV Out (factory overclocked)
Does the 250, 512 etc mean something? I want to have a crisp clear tv picture and photos and to be able to play Sims 2 - and Oblivion. Does the dual mean it would work if I had to connect to two different monitors?
Another question What is needed if I wanted to watch one channel while recording another?
One more question - how important is it to have 2 dvd rom drives?
Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you for your time and help.
