ooo, very interesting gadget
as for your question, no, I plan on getting only a single tuner... currently in the process of switching providers, so I can't decided on which yet. hell if they all piss me off I may just get a some streaming subs and say "to hell with cable!" lol.
oh yes, good catch on the mobo
additionally, what's the major difference between the A6 3500 and the 3850? also, would it really be that loud even at stock? like I said I typically run wind-mill gaming rigs so my usual definition of quiet's a bit different haha
