View Full Version : How to Capture PC Video Game Footage? [Hardware method]

08-18-09, 03:26 PM
This is an area entirely new to me, the world of tuners and capture cards. I am thinking of possibly doing some game reviews or walkthroughs in the near future but I need some help finding the best/affordable hardware to do this.

Yes I know I can use FRAPS to capture video however it takes a big hit out of frame rate and I am looking for a hardware solution so I don't have to do with performance hits while recording HD video :)

Now my question is? How do I capture video game footage coming from a computer? What is the hardware needed? What is a typical setup? (for instance, a computer and a laptop?)

If anyone has any expertise in this area please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
