Default Good bargain tv card?

Hi - I'm trying to downsize a bit at home and am looking at alternatives to tivo and cable etc. So, I was thinking that if there is a bargain video card that I could use to access tv and tivo it, so to speak, that would be of great benefit. I have an AMD Athlon 3000+, 1gb ram, 64mb video card and two hard drives. If possible, I'd love to be able to record shows off of hd over-the-air signals. I'm just confused by the plethora of available choices and price range. Ideally I'd get the best performance for the money card.

Pretty much any of those would work just fine.
