:helpsmile:Okay, there's a total confusion on my part and probably most of the manufacturer's sites as well. I've spent days trying to decipher the minor differences and the major price scale describing all the features of their pci boards.
My specs: P4 2ghz w 400mhz bus, 1gb PC2100 DDR Mem
Hardware: Pri hd - 80gb 7200rpm, Sec hd - 120gb 7200rpm, Multi-DVD writer,(reads and writes all DVD/CD formats inc DVD Ram), I'm also deciding which secondary optical drive has to go_my cd writer or dvd rom drive?
I'm running a ATI 128mb Radeon 9200 for graphics and a 19" monitor.
My question relates to the above hardware. I've visited several sites Hauppage, AVerMedia, Pinnacle, and several others and read as many reviews as I could find.
However, I don't want upgrade too much further other than a good video capture card and sound card, and a combi usb/firewire card. I use DSL highspeed connection and sattelite for my regular tv usage.
What PCI video capture/tuner card is best for my purpose, do I need a satellite version, I'm a newbie to video capture but am computer literate at most other things.
