Video Card, Motherboard, Processor

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

I am currently looking to upgrade my current system. I have a 1.1g celeron
512 megs ram and an All In Wonder 7500.

If your choices are limited to the following site, what combination of
motherboard,processor, and video card give me a good dvd quality recording
at the best price. The celron is just not quite powerful enough to pull off
a DVD quality recording.

    This is a store up the street, prices are in Candian dollars, so I won't be
    buying off a website. Also, when I shop around at various computer stores
    here they carry a similar line when I look for better pricing.

    Thanks

    OK so back to the question......
    athlonXP +2800, Asus a7n8x deluxe, 1 Gig (in a pair of 512mg), a dc10
    capture card or Hauppauge PCI TV capture card, and a pair of 80gb hard
    drives set in raid 0 (with settings of AV), and a 20gb+ hd for your os. You
    may get away with using your aiw7500 for capture, however a dedicated card
    with hardware encoding will give you the best results. Stick with AMD
    processor because ALL benchmarks tend to give AMD the big lead in media
    encoding. The raid array will give you the ability to keep up with and
    speed up the encoding process. The encoding can take hours depending on
    file size, so every little bit helps. I've been running the above setup just
    for AV encoding and I get the best possible DVD quality, for the bucks
    spent.

    This is one of the more painful parts of posting to a newsgroup. While I do
    appreciate you looking for a better price, please don't. You are pointing
    out places no where close to newfoundland and when I buy something I like to
    drop by the store and get it myself.

    What I am looking for is a minimal system to produce good dvd's from the tv
    tuner . Stores here carry pretty much the same brands and I will bargain
    hunt later for the best price once determining the general direction I am
    headed with processor, motherboard and video card. Not even interested in
    RAM, plan on starting with 1gig for the time being.

    Andrew
    I understand your dilema..I live in a Small BC town with only one computer
    dealer and the closest large city is 2-2/12 hours away.
    So this is what I do..........I spec every part of the system and then ask for
    quotes from various stores...online and off line.
    I take this quote to my local store and ask them to explain why they are higher
    in price.They respond by saying online stores less overhead,etc etc but in the
    end by being persistant but friendly they do come down in price.
    I get the system I want at a price I can afford with local service.
    You just have to do the homework and decide what you want and how much your
    willing to spend.There are quite a few online sellers that let you build and
    price a system.
    I am quite happy with my 9600 pro video card and Hauppage 250 PCI TV card with
    Snapstream Software.This works exceptionally well on myASUS A7N8X del ver 2.0
    mobo with 1024 DDR 3200 ram .I picked this board because it has onboard 5.1
    sound,2 network cards USB2.0 plus firewire,SATA HD drive plus space for 4 more
    drives...either HD or CD or DVD burner or all of them.I run an AMD Barton 2500
    chip slightly OC'd to actually run at 2500 insysnc with the ram speed.
    Whatever you decide upon there are a lot of choices out there and as soon as you
    purchase your system something better hits the
    marketplace...................good luck

    Thanks sheer, chastiza, dreamaker, peter and goodman

    Okay so far looking at

    ASUS A7N8X-E DELUXE MOTHERBOARD @ 145
    AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 400FSB Retail @ 280
    DDR400 MEMORY 512MB PC3200 @ 115 x 2 ( but will be looking for 1gig sticks)
    ATI ALL IN WONDER 9600 128MB AGP @ 270
    For a total around $925

    AsusP4P800S board @ $115
    INTEL PENTIUM 4 2.8E GHZ S478 1MB CACHE 800FSB RETAIL @ $267
    DDR400 MEMORY 512MB PC3200 @ 115 x 2 ( but will be looking for 1gig sticks)
    ATI ALL IN WONDER 9600 128MB AGP @ 270
    For a total around $882

    And for anyone interested my budgeted price for these items sits around $900
    for anyone that sees a better combination that can pop out some better
    results that are noticeable, but will go with the lower price if there is
    not a noticeable improvement with DVD authoring or recording from the TV
    Tuner.

    I am also interested in the hardware encoders if they are available at this
    site but am not sure of what does and which do not.

    by dvd authoring, i assume you will be dvd editing.... adobe premiere and
    other video editing/encoding programs benefit from the extra processing
    instructions on the pentium-4 chips, just to let you know... so if video is
    really your bag, go for the pentium-4 hyperthreading chip there instead of
    the AMD.

    Well, for the most part I'm interested in recording shows off the tuner and
    putting them on DVD's with the best quality I can get off digital cable TV.
    So the speed I am the most interested in is for recording so I won't be
    dropping frames, If it takes longer to edit etc I won't really mind but I
    will also enjoy the extra speed if it is there.

    Just changed the motherboard on that one,

    ASUS P4P800 SE MOTHERBOARD @ $137
    INTEL PENTIUM 4 2.8E GHZ S478 1MB CACHE 800FSB RETAIL @ $267
    DDR400 MEMORY 512MB PC3200 @ 115 x 2 ( but will be looking for 1gig sticks)
    ATI ALL IN WONDER 9600 128MB AGP @ 270

    The ASUS RADEON 9550 128MB TV/DVI does not appear to have a TV tuner which
    is why I have the ATI All-in-wonder 7500 and was looking at the ati all in
    wonder 9600 128mb AGP. Is there a better budget choice with equivalent
    quality? Maybe I would be better off with seperate tuner and video cards?

    hey buddy

    i live in toronto, just put together a new system (went for an
    AsusP4P800S board @ $100, P4 2.8E processor @ $230 or something). i've
    had All-In-Wonder cards since they came out, and up until last week had
    the original 32MB Radeon AIW.

    i went with the ATI 9600 All-In-Wonder (not Pro, not XT).... i can say
    that i'm *totally* thrilled with it. videocapture is perfect even at
    full screen, while i'm running other applications. two-monitor-output
    is something i'd been waiting for forever... i've always been hesitant
    about adding a second video card to my system for the second monitor
    because of the driver horror stories i heard.... the fact that this card
    runs two CRT monitors out of the box was a big plus (though it does NOT
    have DVI out if you care).... tv quality is clearly superior to my old
    AIW card.

    i am simply loving my 9600AIW. i'm not into doom3, but I play a lot of
    sports games and run them at close to max settings on a high
    resolution... totally thrilled.... and at a price of $239, there's no
    way i could have picked a better card. plus, it doesn't have or require
    a fan, so it's a totally silent addition to yr system, and you'll never
    have to junk the card because the fan went screwy.

    keep in mind that video-editing, DVD production, video processing, video
    capturing, etc. depends on your processor and RAM, *not* your video
    card, but as per the other AIW cards, you get composite, cable, and s-
    video inputs. if you want firewire, you'll have to get a PCI Firewire
    card.

    loving the 9600AIW. LOVING IT!!!!

    Ok seems you are building a mid range not budget PC. Other things you
    definitely need to take into consideration is case quality, cooling and
    powersupply wattage/quality. Take a look at Zalmans and Antecs. For the
    system specs I would be looking at least a 400watt powersupply for future
    proofing.

    The question AMD or Intel?

    Both are fine but I think you need to rethink your Intel configuration and
    look at the 865 chipset ie P4P800-E Deluxe. Whilst I have an Intel platform
    with my current system, P4C800-E Deluxe (875 chipset), I still think there
    is more bang for you buck with AMD, but you are not after speed more
    reliability and some futureproofing. I recommend Intel platform

    P4P800-E Deluxe
    Dual Channel Memory 1GB (2 x 512 twin sticks)
    Intel 2.8 or 3.0 C (not E) Processor

    With TV cards I use a digital card so would never consider all in ones, I do
    though have a 9600pro and love it.

    cheers

    Hi Andrew

    Firstly I am in Australia and not Canada so you will need to help me with
    knowledge regarding Digital Television Reception in your area. Things like
    High Definition transmission compared with Standard Definition if Digital is
    available at all from the Television stations. Best for you to look at the
    authority website who controls Digital broadcasts and determine the coverage
    in your area. Once you know this will help you make an educated decision on
    which Digital receiver, PCI Card Solution or even now External USB Solution
    ..
    In all instances the software will act as your Digital Player/Video Recorder
    so it is extremely important to use software that has a good support forum
    and is continually developed with improvements.
    Just to let you know 2 hours of recorded Standard Digital television on my
    PC uses more than 6GB of disk space, so storage becomes another issue when
    you wish to keep digital recordings. Unless you are going to use a raid
    configuration with your HDDs I would get an 80GB for the Operating System
    and get either a 160GB or a 200GB for a storage solution. (My opinion of
    latest HDDs is the Maxtor Fluid Bearing is nice and quiet, but for
    reliability I would look at Hitachi).

    The place I purchased my Digital PCI card from is an Australian site,
    www.digitalnow.com.au who provides me with excellent support. You need to
    find a similar site in Canada and use the forum to help determine which
    digital solution best suites you.

    Hope this helps.

    Another point I forgot to mention is that the All in Wonder is cable ready,
    but cable may or may not be digital. Best for you to ask the question on
    this newsgroup is the ATI compatible with digital cable if it is available
    in your area.

    Also there are digital satellite cards too if you do not have digital
    available in your area. But you will need to do a fair bit of research.

    Doesn't seem to be anything capable of digital capture on that site. Don't
    know of any devices that connect to PCs that allow the capture of the
    digital signal that cable companies use in any case--you're generally
    limited to analog capture after decoding by the cable company's box. If
    you have the HD channels then you may be able to capture some of the HD
    content using a QAM capture device.

    For digital capture you really need to be looking at
    <http://www.digitalconnection.com/> and <http://www.copperbox.com>. You're
    dealing with cutting edge technology that most local or chain stores won't
    have a clue about.

    Thanks,

    Since the All In Wonder 7500 performed so well, think I'll go with the 9600
    then. The image quality I'm getting now is pretty darn good and the extra
    boost in the video card and cpu should give me what I am looking for.

    Thanks, allot of info to go over. I have digital cable but for now will
    stick with the all in wonder. I think it will give me all I need.

    Thanks again for your help.
