Do you know if all tv cards that receive freeview are HDready

No they aren't. In any case terrestrial HDTV is a long way away because of the bandwidth requirements. Initially HDTV will be satellite and cable. So the cards you are looking at won't need to be HDTV ready for many years!

However some are HDTV ready but you need a fairly powerful CPU to handle all the extra data in the stream.

One USB dongle that is HDTV ready is click here and it's about the same price as some of the others. If you do a Google search on the full product name you will find a review of it operating on HDTV terrestrial TV in Australia.
