I have the exact hardware you do except I have a 19 inch monitor! I have the AMD theatre pro 650. I run W7 64 bit. Unfortunately AMD still doesn't have software for recording tv shows on W7 64 bit for some strange reason. Anyway it's a good tuner card. Windows media center can handle recording software. You need to download the current drivers for your OS. Don't use the included disc. I run a splitter from my cable company into it. I also have an aerial for over the air digital which is an amazing quality source if you have the reception. The over the air is in 4:3 aspect ratio so I have stuck with my 19" 4:3 monitor.
