    If your thiking of using it with Dscaler i dont think it works with PCI cards.

    From the FAQ http://www.dscaler.org/FAQ.htm

    DScaler requires an AGP card. It is impossible to do on a PCI video card. DScaler uses massive amounts of *bidirectional* bus bandwidth: 250 megabits per second incoming bandwidth (from TV card) and about 500 megabits per second outgoing bandwidth (to videocard).

    But also from the FAQ

    However, some users ahve reported that they are able to use their PCI card successfully and without dropped frames. In some cases however, frame rate goes down when higher and higher resolutions are tried
