Video card with Digital output & video capture

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
My AGP-format video card died and I have to replace it. I'm working from a 2-monitor system (boy, are things cramped right now) and need a card for the AGP slot that will drive the digital input of my LCD monitor. Will I be able to find something that also has video capture inputs? SVGA?

thankx

Thankx...I can't find any info about the 9200 in English. The 9800 at > $400 is too expensive....the 9600 doesn't appear to have TV in. Unless I'm not reading it right.

Any other options?

If you are just looking for something to run a DVI monitor and do video capture I would recommend the ATI AIW line of cards. Just which one you get depends on the price you are willing to pay. The AIW Radeon starts around $99 and you can go up to the AIW Radeon 9800 Pro for $342.

Sorry about the 9200 link.  Here's one for a little over $100: http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/video-card-r92dv-c3l.html

I must have mis-read something about the 9400 that led me to think it didn't support video in. At this point i'm focusing on ASUS GeForce 4 V9480TVD - i've found one for $170. Last time I was in the market the only way to drive 2 monitors was to run the same res and work from a single desktop that spanned both monitors. Things have...umm....changed in the last couple years.

The only question I have at this point is the nature of multi-monitor support and whether i can drive both my monitors off it.

As far as having monitors which display two different things, you still have to do it by extending the desktop, unless the application supports multi monitors (like the games in the TomsHardware article).  You then drag over the application you want to see in the other monitor.

I ended up with an ASUS R9600XT/TVD/128 at a bit over $200. I'll bounce back to this thread next week after I install it to tie up loose ends re: multimonitor stuff. But that'd be gravy to be able to empty a PCI slot...bottom line is I feel very comfortable that I got the best  card for my purposes and I couldn't have done it with out EE & you folk. Thankx to all.
