    an external or internal tv tuner card.there are options for hdtv tuner also from ati.if you want to record tv shows as well to your hdd you might want to consider a pvr card.a hauppauge pvr 150 should do you well for about 70$ but thats only if you want to record tv shows.ati hdtv wonder for hdtv for about 160$ and up.

    well, money isnt the biggest problem. i want good picture quality (and recording sounds actually quite useful).

    what would i be looking for more precisely, and where can i get one?
