Hi I built my PC before setting eyes on these forums. I went about things a bit differently. I don't have the luxury of being able to afford a dedicated HCPC so I had to make the most of what I've got. My Mobo is a MSI K7N420D With the mobo now retailing at around £100 it is a cheap option surely, it also has a 5:1 sound encoder on board too. Luckily the TVout daughter card is only around £15 from dabs and the like So I got one I've been very happy with the results admittedly I'd be no where with out TVTOOL (nice bit of kit). I used to convert my AVI movies to SVCD to play on my Wharfedale M5 and I must say the results are impressive.The quality is better than SVCD. All this for £15. But I did splash out on a Video sender so I haven't got to run any cables the lengh of my room. I admit to have never owned a Radeon graphic card before they do sound good but if you just happen to have a K7N420 motherboard there is certainly NOT a cheaper way to get yourself hooked up.
