Default TV on a monitor

Hi, I have just swapped my TV for a large monitor to enjoy the xbox 360 in High definition, however, I now need to figure out how to get TV on the monitor.

I have been looking at TV cards to fit into my PC that is 2 meters away from this new monitor, but I am concerned about whether someone watching TV on the big monitor would interfere with someone playing games on the PC for example. My PC does have dual Dvi output.

If I buy a TV card for PC, would there be a way to seperate sound generated by the PC (ie in a game) to go to the headphones, and sound created by the TV card to go to the big monitor(it has speakers, and also 5.1 through optical). Or is there a TV card that has an audio out?

Thanks, Trif.

So there isn't any TV tuners that have their own seperate audio out?

Does anyone know of a decent external tuner?
