My CPU is too powerful & i need HDTV tuner

the CPU that i have (athlon ii x3 425) is just way way too powerful, what a beast, i even currently have it underclocked and undervolted just to keep it under wraps. so i am looking for a HDTV tuner, not just any tuner, one has requires more CPU cycles to operate so I can suck some power out of my CPU. i would prefer an internal card rather than a usb solution but can consider anything if it is good enough/recommended to buy. please help me out, my CPU is just too powerful.
