I am a home movie enthusiast. I work in PIII machine with 1Gh 256MB and i have Matrox G200 with 8 mb agp 2x card. I want to upgrade to P4 2.4 ht with 512MB 40gb7200rpm, and should i buy a seperate agp 4/8x card with 128 mb or use the intel extreeme graphics 2 onboard agp chip soltion or use my old matrox g200 ? I have Pinnacle studio with card. I want to upgrade with DV500DVD realtime card.
One another query i have that if i want to convert my dvi/avi movie to mpeg 1 vcd version then i have to convert it through softweare converters, i want to do it through hardware. does pinnacle mp20/30 card do it with hardware? and if i buy and install one such card (low cost solution for faster mpeg conversion) will it do with realtime card already installed in the pc?
