    I currently have a voodoo 3 w/tv-out...old, 16mb, etc. i dont really play games, so i dont need anything too powerful. The only real necessity is tv-out, but i was thinking capture would be an important option (other than price ~$50)

    so which one of these would you guys suggest (or others):

    Saphire 9000

    32MB All-in-Wonder

    Asus 9200
    http://www.accupc.com/itemDetail.jsp?pid=var9200set128


    I'm a little conflicted, the AIW seems great, but it only has 32 megs. Im not sure if Sapphire cards are any good, and the option of capture is wetting my appetite for a card that captures, but, like i said, its not necessary.

    thanks in advance for suggestions.

    I have a "Saphire 9000" Pro and I purchased it from allstartshop.com. ~$80 with shipping just days after it's release, not bad.

    I'd probably go with the Sapphire 9000 as well if it were my choice, but I am not sure what, if any, software comes with the cards.
