I am saving my 1 kuai's to buy a 42" monitor late fall. When I get it, I would like to use my desktop as both the tv tuner and dvd player for the monitor (htpc). To that end, I am looking to buy a video card to use specifically for playing dvd's on the 42" monitor. I do not yet know whether it will be led or lcd, or whatever might be the presiding technology then. Any input now will be appreciated. I would like to spend no more than NT 4,000 but if you feel I need a better card than that money will buy, I can wait until I have more 1 kuai for the card
I ultimately will have a 5.1 or 6.1 surround sound system in the picture. Is that an important consideration when choosing a video card?
