OK, so, it seems the Nvidias only differ in the analog (TV-out) part,
while the digital part is the same for all (correct?)
Thus, what about a configuration like this?
- motherboard with on-board GeForce4 MX, fan-less and TVout-less
- PVR 350
this would save me from the "which Nvidia?" issue, save money,
save trouble, save one free slot, and get a better TV-out quality, right?

YES, of course my primary mean for recording video would be digital encoding
(files, DVD, CD, etc.), but as you all confirm me that it is better
to use the VGA for displaying on the DLP projector,
what else can I do with the TV out, other than connecting it
to the VCR input? (I'd not trash my VHS recorder,
and keep it fully functional in the system).

Oh, no, it works marvellously and I'm very happy with it! :-)
It's just a plug-in replacement to the VGA monitor.
I like it so much that I've even thrown away my 21" monitor
and am using the DLP projector for doing everything
(email, word processing, etc.) on the wall of my room... :-)
