I am trying to get the Asus V9180 VS card to work with Linux & MythTV. 
I like this card because it is AGP and has both Video input and Video 

I could get a cheap converter to go from VGA to NTSC/TV and a capture 
card, but I wanted this (new) system to have all the inputs built in.

Also, this card is CHEAP. It only costs about US $126 and would replace 
the VGA2NTSC converter, the video card and the capture card.

Here are the specs:

V9180 VS (Video Suite) : GeForce4 MX440-8X, AGP 8X, 64MB DDR

*	Powered by the world's most powerful GPU - NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440-8X
*	AGP 8X/4X/2X, support with bandwidth of up to 2.1 GB/sec.
*	High-speed 64MB DDR video memory.
*	Diversified displays connectivity (Dual DVI, Dual VGA, DVI+VGA)
*	ASUS Smart Cooling, ASUS Smart Doctor II, ASUS Digital VCR II, ASUS 
Video Security II

Graphics Engine: NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX440-8X GPU; Video Memory: 64MB DDR 
Video Memory; Vertical refresh rate: 60-240 Hz; TV-out Connector: One 
S-VHS mini-DIN, and One RCA jack; Video-in Connector: One S-VHS

Very, very interesting card.
