Default TV tuner card compatibility

Will any/most of these cards be compatible with integrated graphics? I am specifically looking at the powercolor 550 pro.

If not, can someone suggest a PCI tv and graphics card combo? I have no AGP or PCI-e slot.

post your system specs. compatability for tv cards varies greatly and mostly depends on how you want to use it. for instance you could get analogue card running effectively on as low as a PII but if you wanted to record you would need at least probably a PIII 500-600mhz.

Dell Dimensions 3000

2.8ghz P4
512 ram
80 gig 7200rpm

I don't have the machine with me or I'd tell you more.

I want to be able to use the card to watch live tv and to record. My biggest concern for the card is picture quality.

well you should be able to record well with that hardware. you could probably even use directburn if that card supports it to burn shows directly to dvd.
