    So far the lowest price I've found for a GF3 Ti200 here is $305 which is probably why I went with the GF4MX440 which saved me $95 (all prices Aust. dollar).
    I've used serveral EPoX boards and would highly recommend them and if ya use cases like these <center><img src="http://www.aopen.com/products/housing/exp-h600/exp_600_0.jpg">

    i'm still not to sure on what case i want to get, it all depends on how much money i have once i've figured out what parts i want, i want a nice looking cse though, but i would rather buy a case up here, to save shipping costs and i would like to have a good look at it before purchasing.

    are there any other cards you would recommend over the g4 mx 440 which is around the same price range? i can alter my prices a resonalbe amount, but i'd preffer to keep it to a realistic low.

    just one question: Why did you want the TV-tuner card? to watch TV, or for a video input?

    I'm not sure, but check out ATI's Radeon 8500LE or Radeon 7500. They do have DX8 hardware, and probably are a bit cheaper than a GF3/4, especially that 7500.

    bit of both really, i've never owned nor used one of these cards, the idea of having tv in seemed really

    :) fair enough then. If you need to actually hook up an aerial connection to your computer, then you will need the TV Tuner, but if you can hook up a vcr or something with composite video / s-video leads, then seriously consider looking at the All In Wonder cards.

    Quite a few GF4MX cards will handle video in/out depending on the model but Radeon 7500 AIW start at around $400aus and the plain 7500 start at about $180 and 8500LE start around $350. :smokin:
