    I know the Radeons are the card of choice, but I am wondering what kind of gains I can really expect if I were to replace my Geforce2GTS with a Radeon?

    Currently my HCPC is connected via VGA/RGBHV to a US RPTV, which is HDTV capable (1080i/540p).

    These are my priorities: It must be AGP. I would quite like a dual VGA capability (because I have a spare VGA monitor). The main use of the HCPC would be for TV and DVD viewing, and also as a media jukebox. I would quite like to try interlaced resolutions - but I am not sure if the ATI drivers support this (or how many hoops I may have to jump through to get it working). Passively cooled would be good, and I am not concerned about gaming capabilities. I want flexibility with respect to custom resolutions, so that I can eliminate overscan, and generally optimise/tweak it for my display.

    So should I just stick with the geforce? It is fine for progressive resolutions, but it doesn't support dual displays, or an interlaced overlay. How much better will the radeon picture/playback quality be - if at all?

    I am thinking the 7500 might be in the right price bracket, and suit my needs.

    Cheers,

    Mike.
