What is better depends on your needs.
The websites of these makers will explain their features.
All in Wonder is more for PC TV in.
I suggest ATI 9000 for the avg, user.

Your software qualifications will tell you,if you need it,but i think the latest and greatest is not really needed yet.
Read the half-life box,video requirements.Do you have them ?

The 9600XT is a regular video card. The All in Wonder, or AIW, is a video editing card. You can paly games with it still, it's a little slower than the XT, but you can also imput video to the computer for taping and output data from your comp to your TV.
