I second that. Component kicks the living spit out of SVid.

That's where I got mine. They're just 10 minutes down the road from my 
house, so I actually picked it up in person. The folks there are great 
(esp. Dave). And yeah, gold-connector cables on par with Monster (or 
better, never been that impressed with anything Monster, except for 
what they get people to pay) for 1/4 the price.

That'll vary heavily from one MX440 to another, FX to FX, etc., so I 
don't think it isn't really a blanket statement that the output of an 
MX is better than an FX. Though I've only used MX and 4 Ti cards (all 
looked good except the cheap Jaton POS I chucked).
