    I am interested in watching cable TV programming on my 7500 and wondered what kind of PCI video card would allow this in a resolution or screen size compatible with an Apple 20 inch multiscan monitor.
    Thanks.

    All of the TV Tuner cards have the same resolution limitation of 640x480. Some might use pixel-doubling to achieve up to 1280x960 but it won't give you any better picure.

    Altho the picture won't fill your 20" screen , I recommend you get ahold of ATI's Exclaim VR 128 capture and TV tuner card. It's great, it will drive your large monitor in 2D & 3D mode and allow you to capture video and watch TV, as well as let you switch on the fly to an external TV monitor.
    They aren't producing these little wonders anymore, so watch the auctions and forums for one.

    Terribly tickled with my VR 128
