You can go with the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 but that will run you $150
($139.00 on newegg.com). It's got an on board mpeg-2 encoder, and will
take no processor power to encode, you just have to decode, which you can
do just fine with something in the 300-400MHz range.

Depending on the card, TV out isn't all that hard. The Nvidia's actually
seem to be some of the better cards for that. The matrox G400 is also a
good card, but you need a dongle for the second VGA connector (their
standard dongle has S-Video, RCA and I believe digital all on one)
