I have a leadtek TV2000XP. It's not the fanciest out there but I like it. I have a 1280X1024 LCD display and it looks pretty good. I also have my XBOX hooked up through it too which is kinda nice. I got it fry's electronics for only 30 bucks too

you need an open audio port to use that. i have an external sound card and a dvd burner that uses my audio port do i have to get a new sound card?
