  1. First I recommend you try this before you buy the camera/tripod for recording the games.

    Download the MSI afterburner2.3, I do try it on my other PC ( E6300 o/c to 3.8GHz, 4GB RAM and HD4770, win7 64bit, OCZ vertex2 120GB). I installed the win7 and COD MW2 on the SSD, to do the recording and saving the video to the other HDD. It works fine. The old version can record games play but no sound.
    The afterburner can OC your GPU, control the video card fan speed, screen capture, aslo can record your voice and games play.

    If you want to buy the camera to do it, get this point and shot one with 1080p Full HD Video and HDMI port.

    Also, i couldn't find the 530 here in Norway, do you think the Canon Digital IXUS 510 HS is almost as good?
  4. Yes, it is and good job.

    Also, do you know if there's a list of supported motherboards or is it just anyone with a pci-e slot? I have the motherboard: H61-MU-E35 and a 560 ti. Again thanks alot for the help
  6. Your MB has the one PCIeX16 slot, fit well with gtx560ti, but I don't understand what do you mean "there's a list of supported motherboards".

    Yeah i was just wondering if it would not fit under the 560 ti. But i'm pretty sure it will work

    O i meant supported motherboard for the avermedia live gamer hd, but i just googled it :P But the 510 just have a little 30 minute recording battery :S and it can't charge while recording, do you know any other camera that records atleast 720p, hdmi and can charge while recording. again thanks alot!
  9. Before you make the plunge, read some reviews and take suggestions from the forum. Don't aim too low when choosing a camera. I've never heard anyone complaining that the camera they bought is too good.

    Don't rule out used and refurbished cameras from dealers and manufacturers.
