nope. 5200 isnt 2-in-1

you can get TV-OUT from every graphic card, but for TV-IN, you got to have a graphic card with TV Tuner built in.

and with 256MB, far most i've seen is nVidia GeForce 5700 Personel Cinema.

someone as well has qouted the link above,

you should just get a eVGA 6800GT and an ATI tv tuner(pci) just 2 cards and no cables at all! Plus all the gaming you could want!

well for one you can have a great Vid card in your agp slot(6800GT) and have your tv still! Plus you wouldnt have to get all the cables for an AIW card.

i say go 2 seperate cards... most AIW and personal cinemas are underperformers on games.... also the only way that 256 mb is gonna help over 128mb is in extremely high resolutions... like 1600x1200, you probably dont need it.
