The all in wounder has a TV tuner in it.

from ATI's website http://www.ati.com/products/radeon9600/aiw2006/
TV/PVR on Your PC

* Pause, rewind, replay, skip the commercials and record live TV
* Enjoy the free interactive program guide and never miss your favorite shows again

I looked at the PSU and I can't find the specs on how many amps at +12volts it has, (you want at least 25-30 amps at +12volts) I even looked on there web site and couldn't find the specs. This tells me they don't want you to know how many amps it has because it probably sucks
It's to bad most of the cool looking PSU's are crap

ATI's all-in-wonder cards trade power for features. The all-in-wonder card has a built in TV-tuner so you dont need to buy a separate one.

I would not go with that PSU. It probably wont be very reliable.
You would do much better to go with this one.
