    fixed.

    It doesn't even need to be a video card, I have a tv tuner PCI card that only costs about $60 (http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/leadtek-2000-expert/). Came with a handy remote, too. if you go this route, you will not be able to receive any "digital" channels, only standard cable (something like 70 channels).

    there are more expensive ways to get digital cable on your pc, www.slingbox.com is one of them.
