This discussion kinda started from another post, firstly I was going to go for a PVR-350 but realised its TV-Out was very restrictive, then I thought of an XCard but found it was hard to come by and only 256 colour for menu's and pictures http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif so im stumping for a traditional graphics card with TV-Out now so was thinking of either a Radeon 7000 or GeForce FX5200 which are both quite cheap...

However, I have seen posts praising the FX5200's here:

but some other people say its the otherway round and the Radeons TV-Out is better!!

Please help http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

The fx5200 is dx 9 card whilst the radeon 7000 is not, so when it comes to vmr 9 acceleration the 5200 will help lessen the load on the cpu when playing back files. So if it was my money the 5200 would be my choice. I have an ati radeon and a nvidia geforce card and the tv out isn't better on one than the other in my view.
