I have built a media centre PC for my living room, based on a Shuttle SN41G2 and using a Nebula Digital DVB-T card for TV input. Up to now I have used the motherboard built-in graphics card to output in s-video to my TV, but have now bought a new TV with DVI-D input and I want to take full advantage of this.
What is the best graphics card to output to the TV using the DVI connection with the following points in mind.
1: The best picture quality for TV broadcasts
2: The card must not have a fan
3: Can meet the TV’s 1280X720 resolution
4: Can output HDTV
I believe the Radeon cards have the better video engine and have found Connect3D do a 9600 without a fan. Would a vivo card be a better choice than a stright foward graphics card for my needs?
Sorry for all the questions, but any advice would be very welcome, Thanks
