I am getting a new AMD based system and have an old Hauppage WinTv pci card. Additionaly, I plan to install a sata-ide card to use my old hard drives; this card runs at 133mhz. I am not sure what the WinTv card runs at. I am worried that the WinTv or ide card will slow down the bus speed and the system. Do I have anything to worry about? Thanks in advance.

Nothing to worry about.
The PCI bus runs at a set 33mhz for all devices. Your SATA card's speed is the transfer rate to/from the HD.
Thanks... I didn't want to waste my stuff nor slow the system down.
