Sorry I worded that wrong....the 350 has the decoder as opposed to no
decoder in the 250. Is it worth the extra $$$?

The Freestyle, 250, and 350 have hardware encoding. That's the whole
point of the cards.
The Freestyle, 350 and early 250 models have hardware decoding in addition
to the above. (Though I'm not aware of any driver that takes advantage of
the decoding in the Freestyle and 250R1 cards) The 350 has TV-out in
addition to the above.
