Recommendation needed for am ATI card to connect to my HDTV. My HDTV
has a DVI input, Component and Composite.

My budget is up to $200.

The primary usage of this card is to display, as best as possible,
DVD, WMV HD, Divx videos to my HDTV.

This card will not be used for pc gaming or tv tuner. I play console
game and have a cable hdtv box from my cable provider.



Thank you,

Thank you,

9600 pro works well also. Picked 1 up for $60 total on eBay.

Just read the other post in this group:

ATI Image Quality Breakthrough - ATI > NVidia > XGI
Only X1300 and up will enjoy the benefits of AVIVO

That looks like a real slick card but from what I can tell, the
processing is greatly improved for composite video. DVDs and HD do not
use/need 3d comb filters so it would be kind of a wash. My Athlon
xp3000 runs around 25% +/-10% CPU activity when playing back OTA HD
recordings and never stutters so reducing the CPU usage isn't
particularly important. Don't get me wrong, it looks like a fine card.

Thanks for the info.

This is exactly what I am looking for.

You are welcome.... Don't forget to download the lastest ATI driver
that came out today - Version 5.13, it unlocked the AVIVO hardware
acceleration for HD videos; and unlike Nvidia's purevideo, it is free!
Kudos to ATI!
