I wud suggest u to look for a TV Tuner Card instead of a AGP card if Video Capture is the primary requirement. TV tuner Cards normally comes with a Video/RCA/Cable In. Use a Video Capture program to grab the video.

Low end TV Tuner cards cost around 40 - 60 $ and they do justice to their cost. Try n add a AGP 4x/8x with 128 mb DDR for ur display needs and a mid order card wud be around 50-80 $.

this combo wud fit ur bill and wud have enuff kick.

If you really need to do this in one slot, get the ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon. The old ones (I have an original) should be very cheap indeed. They go for under $40 on eBay, but have only 32MB VRAM.

The 8500DV goes for about $75, but has only 64MB VRAM.

You *might* be able to find a 128MB AIW for under $90, but you will have to find a deal.

They are very nice cards and come with some really nice software. They capture with hardware MPEG encoding, too. I think they are worth their price.

all very good ideas...thanks....

the old ati all in wonder would be ok for the rca input, but i wanted something that would give decent performance while gaming (128 video ram and 128 bit technology)

interesting idea about buying seperate cards....but it would be even better if there was a reasonably priced agp or pci video card that could do it all with the above specs.

great ideas... keep em coming :-)
