    Hi Peeps,

    What is the difference between these two for TV and DVD watching?

    Won't be doing much gaming... if any.

    THanks

    Thanks Lisa.

    In real terms what will I be missing out on on re "bad edit correction" and "pulldown" if I go for the 6200. Is it still NTSC compatable?

    Yes, it will play back everything, for NTSC use 60hz refresh rate for NTSC use 50hz refresh rate. Those features are post processing the image in hardware, I use a 6600GT in my HTPC and find it a much improvement over my old FX5200. However other people on here have the 6200 and are happy, so it may do the job as well.

    Not sure about what the difference is in hardware accelaration, may be important if you want to play back hi-def content and take the load off your cpu.
