This card might just be the best thing to happen to digital media on PC’s in years.  The card is promising Inverse Telecine, MPEG-2/MPEG-4/DivX/WMV9 hardware encoding and decoding.  You can encode MPEG-2 and WMV9 up to HD resolutions!

The only issues with this card are (1) The power (2) The space.  This card will require 2 power leads from the PSU.  It will take up the AGP slot+the closest PCI slot.

Windows Media Center Edition will shine assuming this card will be supported.  Getting HD into the PC and having hardware encode to limit CPU usage.
