I was wondering if I was correct in thinking that the difference between the two are: A little less 3D performance on the 7500 and that there is no firewire on that board either? I plan on using the card to watching and recording tv and to play games like Nascar2002. I really don't get into anything that requires the best 3D abilities. I just purchase the 8500DV for 215 but I found out I can get the 7500 AIW for 145. Any suggestions? Thanks guys.
