Video Card Advise
Apologies if posting to the wrong area.
I have decided to upgrade the video card in my MCPC
2 of the choices i have are:
Asus 9600GT is $200.47 + GST
next step up is the ASUS Extreme N9800GT Hybrid Power/HTDI/512M
@ $249 + GST.
I would like a video card that has HDMI ouputs - which apparently the above do. I do not yet have a HDTV - but its in the pipeline- so i do want a card that can suitably output 720p and 1080i (which are the 2 formats used by Freeview NZ).
For the moment the card also needs to be able to output in composite via tv out/adapter - so i can use on current tv until the hdtv gets purchased.
Does anyone have any positive/negative feedback on those 2 models - or even better have a more suitable recommendation based on my needs above?
I should say that i currently have an ASUS EN7300 and the 1080i broadcasts seem quite jittery - more so than the 720p broadcasts which the EN7300 seems to handle better.
