Hola! I am just getting to the point where my old video card in my Compaq 7110US won't play a few of the games I'd like to try, it won't support the new digital LCD monitor that I got (no DVI out, no widescreen resolution). So my first step will be to upgrade my video card - one of the more experienced posters recommended making sure that I select a card with DirectX9 - what is the difference between this and the other DX versions? Next step is for a new TV tuner - any recommendations here? I am trying to keep the price low on this, but I'll spend what I have to in order to get a quality tuner. I would like one that is HD ready, so that I can just plug in an HDTV cable box and watch HD on the widescreen monitor. Suggestions? I am also playing with the new Viewsonic 1912 widescreen monitor here at work, as opposed to the 20.1" Sceptre from Costco that I have from home. Has anyone compared the cheaper Viewsonic WS line with other models? I am interested in how the Sceptre stacks up to the 20.1" Viewsonic. Is there a better choice for my home needs (AutoCAD, surfing & e-mail, photos, NO gaming, and TV/DVD viewing)? Anyways, Thanks for the knowlegeable insight that has already been shared, and I'll be browsing the site further to learn as much about video as possible.! Thanks.
