pci video cards

Postby Red_switch » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:23 pm

Bullshit, I know, but does anyone know where I can find a PCI nVidia video card with VDPAU support that won't cost me a shit tonne?

Otherwise, I build one myself :baton:

Mate, making your own is a waste of money.

Spend a grand on a hand made one from Oz, having a nice card makes you want to watch videos more often because the interface is a joy to use.

PCI or PCI-E?? If you only have PCI what the fuck are you even doing on that machine it must be like 10 years old now.

Yeah, just PCI, lame as fuck, I know. Not quite ten years old, more like 7. The mobo has space for a PCI-E slot, but it ain't never got put on!

Found a card that should work, for cheap. Looking at setting up a dedicated xbmc box as cheap as possible from bits and pieces I've got lying around. If I really get into it I'll get around to upgrading the mobo and processor when I get the chance.

Pretty much turns your tv into a smart tv. Way less work and it's all ready to go.

I've heard they can battle with hd? Keen to hear otherwise, but really, my tv can already do 95% of what that can do... mainly keen for all the extra shit xbmc can do (that said, it should run from one of them android things anyway?), and also the scope to expand the box into a pvr at some point too.

Have you played around with those android thing-o's at all?

They have 2.4GHz wireless keyboard and mouse support built into them. you can also use a remote type thingee, or just yell at it.

yelling at it seems my style.

none of the ads specify what it comes with or what else you need to make it go, one of them mentioned an 'air mouse' which i have never heard of, so i wondered if it worked like a smartphone, especially after the frankly retarded term 'smart television' was used, so i imagined an onscreen keyboard like a phone has...

sorry for not knowing something that you know jay.

Heaps of cool shit can be done with those suckers, but like J says, they can get a bit loaded...

My original quest continues.
