I have followed the linux for video debate for some time without being
any wiser as to which video card to choose for the new PCs I am
building. Ditto for sound.
I want 16/32M AGP graphics with good 3D performance, a TV tuner (I guess
this needs a BT848 or similar), realtime video capture & playback (some
form of MPEG compression?). I don't need Linux support for the TV or
Video right away so long as it's in the pipeline. Am I expecting too
much from one card? Am I better off buying a graphics card and a
seperate TV/Video card - if so which?
I am aware that some graphics card manufacturers have been hostile, or
less than helpful, to the open source community and I would prefer not
to buy their products, given a choice.
Regarding sound cards, most of the advice I have received points to the
sound blaster awe64 or such. What of the SoundBlaster Live! value or
All advice gratefully received.
