I have a pvr350 and a pvr150, as well as an old wintv pci and the wintv pci 
never stayed in the box for more than a couple days.  You'll be pleasantly 
surprised how much better the quality is with the pvr cards, in my opinion.  
They look fantastic.  I have other reasons for not keeping the wintv pci card 
in though.  Because I'm using the pvr350's tv-out, it just can't produce a 
smooth, clean playback of mpeg4 or rtjpeg encoded files since it's not using 
the decoder.  So I'm sticking with the two pvr's for now.
