    Im finishing up a build for a freind. The guy is going to be running a lot of HD content. I set it up with a haupauge video card amd phenom processor because he said he might eventually up grade to gaming. 4 gigs of ram, 1tb hard drive. he wants to bassically wants to run it as a media center and have all of his mp3's and movies on there and use it as a DVR as well.

    Im wondering what video card I should use. he also wants to attach a secound monitor to the mix in case he wants to do some work or something he can just do it off og the computer and then leave his wife watching what ever the hell she wants on the tv.

    You're going to get flamed for buying AMD, just wanted you to be aware.

    Get an nVidia video card with two DVI ports, one for each screen. Don't buy into the SLI dual-video-card bullshit.
