Performance, Performance, Performance!!!              
      I'm tring to find the best 256 MB video card for the Asus k8v deluxe or k8v deluxe-se motherboard.  I want to stay in the $400 area.  I want the best video card for watching and recording DVD's, high performance gaming, and video editing ,on not only my PC monitor, but my 50" big screen TV, and soon a  60" big screen HDTV.  Should I stick to the same manufacturer as the mainboard?

This is the card I have And it is wonderful. The cost is a bit more then some of the others.
But it dose have VIVO (video in video out) I get a score of 6200 on 3dmark 2003 with a AMD 3200+ CPU.

It will put you above your $400 budget. Unless You can find a very good buy.

It is not necessary.  However, stick with high quality manufacturers.  Someone like ASUS or Gigabyte.


Either one of the GPU's that you are looking at are excellent.  Maybe you would like to look at this for some performance benchmarks.
