    Hello everyone! I wasnt sure where to post this. I am a computer dummy, and i need some help.

    I was wanting to take a video off my computer and put it on a video camera (analog) or vcr, and if i want to, put it back on the computer to edit it.

    I know i need a sound card and video card. I believe i need in/outs on both s/v card correct?

    I found a cheapsite newegg.com and i want to order my cards from them. The question is, which cards do i get?? I dont need the top of the line. I want something that'll do the job. My max limit is 200, but if i can get something pretty good cheaper, then that'll be great! If you can please give model numbers and name brands so i can search, i would greatly appreciate it

    All your info would be greatly appreciated

    Well all you really Need is a PCI TV Card which can cost anywere from $5 to $100...The TV Cards that use the 10Bit decoders are the Best Quality ones..Like the "Asus TV Tuner" is good and the "MSI TV@nywere" is also good..If you are Trying to Capture From Retail VHS Tapes you might run into a problem with the Tapes being Copy protected which makes you captured Video Look awefull so to get rid of that you would need a Device called a Video Stabilizer that Plugs between your VCR and the TV Card....Chech Ebay for Cheap TV Cards...
