Default One last upgrade for a while

Ok, i have found every thing i need to upgrade my pc for now...except a TV tuner. I just had some questions
Budget: $50 US
Is there and decent tuners that fit my budget and have a remote?
Is there any good tuners that doesnt require a sound card
And if it does require a sound card? Can i use intergrated sound as long as it fits the "Bit" requirements?
As far as TV Tuners go, are they really powerhungery or require like 5 or 6 watts?
i was really looking at the "Kworld" cards because they get pretty good reviews.

It shoudn't be more than 5 watts

This one has a remote control but I don't know if it provides a decent picture....

Under 50$, I don't you'll get a picture as good as a 200$ card but it can still be decent...

Edit: I have a TV tuner card and no sound card and it works fine...
