    I think it really depends on what you want to do with it.
    I used one of these very happily for s-video out into a TV.
    When I got the projector I upgraded to an ATI radeon card, and the image was clearly better, deeper colours, sharper etc, though I doubt I would have noticed much difference on the TV.
    I dont use it for video capture, so I cant comment on that side.

    I tried an all-in-wonder card with my HTPC and HS10 projector and the picture looked terrible. It's an analogue card and I got quite a bit of noise. It might be OK for watching TV in a window on a PC monitor but watching full-size on a projector..... no way.

    I bought the nebula digi-TV card from
    http://www.nebula-electronics.com

    Since it's a digital card, the picture is processed digitally by the PC and the picture is incredibly clean. I'm very impressed by it. It's probably the best TV picture that I've managed to get on my projector to date and I've tried;

    video recorder tuner output via RGB
    set top box output via S-video
    ATi all-in-wonder output via DVI

    my current system is Sony HS10 WXGA fed via DVI. Picture size is approx 84" diagonal.

    The nebula system provides personal video recorder (pause TV etc) and has integrated electronic program guide. All in all a very good product.

    Hope this helps
