Default Suggest a Video card

What video car would be the best choice if i were to make a small effiecent bare bones computer made to only record video from 3-5 cameras. or would i have to have several video cards for that many cameras. it'd be kinda like a security video setup but with a cheap computer to do the small amount of work and mounted inside the dash of a truck, with a fairly large HDD. 20-30 hours of video would be fine on 3 views. More for recreational purposes then security.

I don't think you'd need anything very expensive for that, maybe something like this:

That'll be more than enough for what you want. If you're tight on cash, get something more like this:

I'm assuming you're running Windows XP on this machine?

hmm, i see an S-video, DVI and regular monitor plug on this card, how would i go about plugging 3 to 5 cameras into it to record multiple views simotainously to a HDD.

I would perfer to use an operating system that i wont have many troubles with and keep the cost on that fairly low, but hardware wise id like quality components, the OS wont be very visable for this application so it'd be a bit of a waste to buy a newer version when somthing like win98 will suffice.

Also what type of video output on the cameras would be ideal for this operation?
