I'd like to buy a video camera for my PC but I don't want to spend so much that the quality won't be noticeable given my software/hardware.
Questions:
1.  Is there a point at which spending more on a camera will make NO difference?
2.  Should I stick with USB cameras?  Or are there other interfaces that are just as useful?
3.  Recommendations for cameras please?

if you want a stationary one for your computer the quality does not need to be as good as the type of videos you will likely be taking are less intensive than a video of high speed scenery. as such i would just comb the internet for a good priced HD webcam

what PC is it, and what oS are you running?
for transferring larger video files, it can be useful to have USB 3 on the PC - and camera !
