whats up guys. well, i finally ordered what i was looking for. ended up going with this
part from tigerdirect.com. it had good reviews from tiger as well as other sites, and its vista ready. i have no need for a tv tuner or anything like that. (although in the future, after i build a new pc, i might consider one
). so for analog video capture, i think what i ordered will be fine.
id like to thank you all for your suggestions. take care!
