    Alright i am planing on dual monitoring in the near future and i want to have it where i can have it as one shared screen, but also the capabilities of turning one of the screens into a tv. Right now i have an fx 5600 ultra card, what other card would i need to do what i want to do.

    Thanks

    You dont need another card, unless you plan on running 2 REAL TVs screens...

    The 5680 will do just fine. All you need for the TV, is a PCI TV tuner.

    You just need a TV tuner card. That way, you can run your dual screen from your FX card, and play the TV from the TV card on either screen.

    any recommendations on a good but conservative tuner?
