Hey guys. I just bought my first DVD burner. I want to hook up my VCR and convert my old home movies to DVD. I have an old video card lying around that has video-in jacks to capture video. I was thinking of simply hooking that up to my computer and using that.
Question - It’s an old card. I believe it is a “RAGE FURY PRO 32MB w/Video-in and TV-out”. My system itself is fairly powerful (Athlon 2400, 1 gig ram, 80gb hard drive). Does the card itself make a difference in the quality of the video, or the speed in which it is processed? Also, does the speed of the video editing program rely on the video card, or the cpu, ram, etc.?
If it matters, how much of a difference does it make, and what would be a good recommendation for a new one, keeping in mind that I want to spend as little as possible?
If this would be better answered in another forum, please direct me. Thanks!
