I'm switching away from my PCI cards to some USB cards.  They seem to 
burn less heat than the PCI cards did...

I have one of these as a trial:
     (PEAK External Dual Channel DVB-T TV Tuner)

Seems to be working ok and I'm going to buy 2 more and see what 
happens... I believe that this may be really saturating the USB bus, but 
I am not sure what tool I can use to check that?  I don't have much else 
interesting connected though

I don't believe that any PCI-E cards are yet supported under linux?  
Check the linuxtv wiki?

Good luck
