    I gotta question. A TV tuner card is a card that's not your video card that is used to watch TV on your computer, correct?

    And if yes, I shouldn't have a problem doing a dual video card with SLI and having a TV tuner card, correct? Thanks guys.

    Mostly correct. ATI makes a line of video cards with built in tuners (All-In-Wonders). They are not what you are looking for. Other than that, as long as you have the slots for all three, you should be fine.

    most TV cards are PCI, so assuming your SLI is PCIe, then you should be fine. I highly recommend the Hauppauge cards. Get a 150 or 250. The newer 150's come with a remote control, and an IR receiver for it.
