Default dual graphics cards

i have a sony pcv-rz32g and it has a 64 mb GeForce MX440-8x the only thing that is keeping me from replacing this card is the fact that is has video in, and sometimes i like to record my tvshows with it, but it only has 64 mb and i need more for my video editing and gameing is there anyway i can have 2 video cards and just use my old one as the video capture device?

the only way you can do that, is if you have the extra video card slot on your mobo. if not, then you will just have to look for another card that is stronger and has the ability to have input video. you can find those, but i dont know how much they run.

Just get a TV Tuner or a ATI All-In-Wonder card.

TV Tuner is the best idea. Something like WinTV will even record your TV for you anyway, without your intervention and with good quality.
