You don't need hardware for that. Simple programs such as Fraps will record games.
The rest of your computer looks fine.

I don't think you understand. A capture card is meant to take something like a cable television signal and capture the picture for display on a pc. The games are already on your PC and thus you do not need a card to "capture" it. What you need is software to record the games. Fraps is the one I know can do that offhand but I'm sure there are other programs that also do so that you might like better.

No you are wrong,
capture cards capture a much higher quality than Fraps + fraps doesnt work well in games like CoD.
if you wanna record high pixel HD i would indeed prefer a capture card! most screens have 2 HDMI connections so it shall not be hard ;) 

why i post this? i got teh best single card graphics possible the 5970 and fraps still drops me to a 15fps ;)

All you need is software... it makes no sense to need a card to "capture" the output of another card. Perhaps fraps isn't the best software to do so but something is seriously going wrong if it is dropping your FPS to 15 on an HD5970.
Also are you saying most monitors have an HDMI output that passes through the signal?
