    T.V capture? Not sure about the U.S but 90 will get you a decent digital capture card in the U.K (so you can watch freeview television).

    Read around about external as well. Whilst it may not be the case anymore I know a while back a external card was considered inferior to an internal one as it suffered from having to be fed through a relatively slow USB connection (compared to a card plugged directly into the motherboard).

    I bought an ATI TV Wonder Pro for $70 less a $20 rebate at CompUSA. ($50 total)

    I'm strictly a noob about capture cards but found this works just fine and the software was pretty intuitive to use. The software also includes a
    TV guide for programming purposes if you're so inclined.

    The tuner is cable ready(like a TV). It has component audio/video as well as S-video inputs.

    You can buy an optional RF remote that supposedly can replace your mouse. But it's about as much as the card itself.

    The first clip I captured was from a VCR and I subsequently sent the clip to a friend and they were impressed at the quality.
    (you have your choice ofcompression schemes)

    You can always use 3rd party software if you don't like ATI's. I also have Nero Ultra and it has capture capability and does work with this card.

    my .02

    good luck
