Default TV Capture card.

Ok so i need a good TV Capture card with the capability to play my consoles (XBOX, PS, N64, SNES and any others i might get) through my PC monitor. If you can direct link to the card you know of it would be great. If possible i'd like to keep it under $40. Thanks in advance.

yeah i recokon pci would be better heres a link to one at newegg for under $40 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814122180 that looks ok , if you could afford it i would say go for a haupahe win tv card but they are around $70 , well worth the money tho . i have one that is about 3-4 years old and it works , even for converting vhs to dvd

I have the same card as muz mentioned....It is a great card for the price, but if you wan't excellent quality i would go a bit higher in price, it is the cheapest of them all and mine isn't the best quality around, as in picture quality..

That is a very basic card, I would try and get a Hauppage (spelling?) or a Leadtek, as I know they are fairly good quality at the least...I found with my card when i plugged in a console or DVD player, I got a bit of static and lines through the screen, I think thats what your gonna get with a cheaper card
