Default Can TV-tuner cards be swapped between computers?

Hello again to all of you,

I purchased an HP media centre computer a while ago. It came with a tv-tuner PVR card, which i LOVE and i use it very often.
I'm selling my computer to someone, but i want to keep the tv tuner card. Is there any way i can just pop it out of the computer and put it in my new one? Will i run into software / driver issues? It uses a PCI slot, which i know i will have free on my new system.

The computer is the HP m7330n.

it'll be fine, just go to the HP site for your make and model and download the tv tuner drivers they provide, save those on some external drive and install it onto the pc you install the tv-tuner to

it'll fit fine into another PCI slot on a different computer and will run great as long as you have the right drivers (provided by HP)
