Hi, I currently run a p4 2.4,,,it does the trick for me but my children are bordering teenager years and have started moding my system i have upgraded my memory from 256 to 512,added a dvd burner and also upgraded the sounds for them to the audigy 24 bit zx,,,i must admit with the creative speakers they picked we as a family have benefited mostly with that package,,makes a great hi-fi now,,,,,ok problem time,,,they now want a fancy case with "neon lights" and a new graphics card for better game play and they want to be able to watch tv on our system,,,,1st is my best option an all in wonder card? and secondly is it an easyish job stripping my del pc to add to this new case?Value Dracula S-313BB Black seems their choice.....

aiw does not have digital (freeview) TV

it is better to get a digital (freeview) TV card, for example avermedia DVB-T cost around £70

G-card, ATI 9800 pro only costs about £130
