TV FM cards

I have just ordered a 2.8Ghz pc and need to get a few add ons. There seems to be too much information available to make a decision, can anyone help?

TV cards - Hauppauge Win TV PCI FM or Pinnacle PCTV PCI or PRO. Are these cards about the same and therefore price is the key here?

Internet Security - Norton and McAfee both have internet security products. Does anyone know how these products compare?

All-in-one printers. Hp seems to be the way to go but there are 3 Officejets on differing prices. HP Officejet 6110, HP PCS2210 and PCS2110. I have a media card reader on the PC, apart from the higher print speeds for the 6110 above the 2210 and 2110. How do they compare for value for money / running costs?

I am looking for a good value 17" or 19" TFT DVI screen but prices start in excess of £400.00. Should I wait for prices to go down or is second hand or an auction site a better option.

Nope. But loads of people here use AVG 6 click here for AntiVirus - Free for personal use. And i use Sygate Personal Edition (free again) as a firewall click here

All the iNternet security you need without a) paying or b) using big bloaty programs...

Thanks for the information on the two internet products, presumably though free I would still be able to get some support ad upgrades to maintain a protective screen?


AVG 6 - no support but free upgardes

Sygate - not sure
