Need Recommendation for PCI card = SVGA + audio + video capture


I inherited a PC with only 1 free PCI slot remaining.
(The other slots are being used for NIC, Disk Controller, Modem, etc.)

With the 1 free PCI slot, I would like to install a card which contains:
a. SVGA output
b. Audio input and output
c. Video capture input (RCA jacks, NTSC format, etc.)

Can you recommend one PCI card that does all this?

Thanks

The TV cards I have seen usually have sound built on - it's usually JUST for the TV Card though... (Other Sounds wouldn't come through, just TV (meaning MP3s wouldn't play sound through it))

The only card that I know of that comes close is the ATI All in Wonder (Doesn't mean there isn't another one)

If you have a Video Card, you might think about swapping it... If not, the All in wonder maybe the only way? =( Sounds bad if I'm right.

There is are no cards that has video capturing, graphics controller, and sound all on board. If there is one, it will never work in Linux. If you only have one PCI slot, you have to find PCI riser slot that is a powered version. Some microitx sites have some. The real question will you have room to add a PCI riser slot. The PCI controller is able to handle several PCI slots, so it will not be problem in hardware point of view. You probably have to use extruded aluminum or other materials to build a computer case because today's computer cases do not have enough room.

lose the winmodem and fit an external serial modem then you'll have an extra slot to play with.
