Default TV Tuner or not?

i decided that i want to buy a new video card to replace my FX5200. I was going to buy a GeForce 6600GT but then i saw some video cards with tv tuners. Now i can't decide between the GeForce 6600GT and the ATI Radeon 9600XT All-in-Wonder. I'm really wanting this card for gaming though but the tv tuner seems like a really cool feature also. How big of a difference is there in the performance of the 6600GT to the 9600XT? Is the tv tuner worth the worse performance?

The 6600 GT gets a 3dmark03 score of around 7500 and up to 8500 with overclocking whereas the 9600 XT gets around 4000, so i would get the 6600 GT and get a cheap PCI tv tuner.
