I was wondering the same thing, like how it compares to the 6800 Ultra

The 5700 is 82 Million Transistor Card based on 0.13 Micron process.  It is fully DX9.0 compliant.  It also features 3 vertex pipelines and 4 pixel pipelines capable of rendering 1 pixel per clock cycle per pipeline.  The core runs at 425MHz and the 128-bit memory at 300MHz DDR = 600MHz.  For $70 with a tuner and VIVO, I'd say it's worth it, but don't expect to play Doom3 - HL2 for sure, but no Doom.

Been price checking to see if it would be worth buying 2 cards and it aint.  I think next month going to buy it for a small unit to sell.  I almost cant wait to get just to see how it performs.  I want the 7800GTX but going to have to wait another couple months.

GENERALLy speaking, ati has a better tv tuner card I think.  You can also buy a vid card and a tv tuner separately.

I just said buying the apart is more money, and I not into buying ATI. 

Guess I should have also added this is for a shuttle like mini system adding more then one card is really not going to work.
