I am trying to get good quality on some videos I record while playing games. I used FRAPS last night just to test it and it came out OK. I am wondering (1) If I use a capture card, would I get better HD quality (even if just a minimal increase) and (2) as a novice, how in the heck would one go about connecting it all together based on the hardware I have (listed above) with the video capture card (listed below).
I am thinking about getting the BlackMagic Intensity Pro card. Would this be beneficial? If so, how would one go about hooking up the rig with all the combinations of HDMI and DVI connections?
