Ok, I will be getting a new video card to go along with my new 1.1 gig t-bird, I'm moving up from a 350 k6-2 so this will be my first athlon. I'm excited, but my aging TNT card needs an upgrade. I want to try and do some video input stuff into the computer so this card looks pretty sweet combining all I want. I will be running it mostly on win98se. Anybody care to comment on how the video input/output is and it's dvd playback capabilities. Any comparable cards with these vivo features on other cards from different companies?
I also saw a 32mb radeon all in wonder, which basically ads a tv tuner which I already have, although a crappy one which I've tried to capture video with, didn't go very well on my k6-2 system. I look forward to doing it on the radeon. Will be doing saving of video files to my 7200 rpm 45 gig 75gxp, so hopefully it can keep up.

The Radeon 64MB VIVO is a very nice card. DVD quality is great. Video in and out are the best in the industry.
