I dont really trust these unknown brands like kworld or happysausage or whatever it was. ATI is a well known brand. people may not like it because nvidia is better but this isnt really a graphics card so id rather go with a more trusted brand.
I'd already covered the possibility that he might have a laptop...

And yea, you're kind of right about unknown brands, but someone's always going to have to be the first one to have some balls and give a different company a chance. Fortunately for me, newegg allowed me to read reviews other people posted that already had success with the product. It's not like I even had to be the first person. It's lasted me nine months of DAILY use so far, and it works flawlessly, the software is excellent, and the price is right, so I really don't care who makes it. Also, just because you have never heard of a certain brand doesn't mean that it is an "unknown brand."

Afterall, think about how expensive (or rather, cheap) a real TV is. You can buy a 19" color tv for like $50 on sale nowadays. With a physical tv, the circuitry that does most of the work is only one part of the production cost. The cost of the CRT, glass screen, plastic housing, exterior design, speakers, etc all has to be paid for, too. With a tuner card, you are in essence only getting the circuitry. Why pay premium for it?
