    whichever model u buy...
    but DO NOT go in for Pixelview card...they are the worst...

    before deciding which card to buy...
    make ur mind which "type" of card u want...
    internal or external ??
    do u need the card for just entertainment purposes,for viewing TV or u want to record TV and edit it as well ???

    ofcourse $$$ budget too !!
     
  4. hi

    i suggest u to go for compro video mate which is priced at Rs1500, as grinning devil says never go for pixel view they r worst card becoz they r not compatiable with new pci e mobo.
