Default ATI x800xt PE vs. ATI x800xt ALL IN WONDER

Ok. So last week I bought the x800 XT PE. And I can't be happier with this card. But, I was just reading an article online that was talking about the x800XT ALL IN WONDER. Now, I know that the clock speed of the PE is slightly faster then the AIW. Is this even noticable between the 2 cards? Is the PE that much better for gaming than the AIW?

Now i'm kinda wondering if I should have bought the ALL IN WONDER. Mainly due to the added features like PVR (Personal Video Recording), AM/FM tuner and Remote Wonder II.

I'd love to be able to record baseball, basketball and football games to my hard drive to watch later. (AKA - TIVO) Then be able to burn those video files to a DVD for archiving.

What do you all think?

I have a regular 9800 Pro and an All in Wonder 9800 Pro. Unless the extra goodies of the All in Wonder series really appeals to you, the x800XT PE is a much better option.

As pointed out above, you can buy a TV Wonder which has the exact same features an All in Wonder card offers.
Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w
