I'm FINALLY building my dream system in a few weeks. I knew everything I wanted hardware wise except for the video card. After extensive research, I've narrowed it down to one: Visiontek 5564 Personal Cinema . I wanted an "all-in-one" card that did everything well: 2d acceleration, 3d graphics rendering for gaming, DVD playback, and tv tuner capability for watching and digitally recording DirecTv. Any thoughts and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Anyone here have any experience with this card or similar products? I'm planning on buying the Creative Labs Audigy Platinum because it appears to be the best out there. Is it? Or does Creative Labs just market better? I've heard others here refer to "professional" sound cards but couldn't pull any info from a search. Any information to steer me in the right diretion would be great. I'm also listing my final configuration to see if anyone has anything to add or in case I might've missed something: Codegen 6016L-P4 (Silver) P4 ATX Case P4 1.8GHz processor ABIT TH-7R P4 motherboard 1 GB RIMM memory Maxtor 80GB 7200RPM Ultra ATA 133 HDD Plextor 40/16/10 CDRW Pioneer 500M 16x DVD Floppy drive Creative Labs Audigy Platinum sound card Visiontek 5564 Personal Cinema video card Creative Labs Inspire 5.1 5300 speaker system Pioneer DV-A03 DVD-RW drive SYS 17" Flat panel LCD My plan is to dual boot with Win95 for gaming only and Win2K Advanced Server for everything else.
