GeForce vs ATI

I've been looking at various video capture cards and it seems the ideal is the ATI All-In-Wonder 32mb DDR card. The problem is, I really want a GeForce 3 for my video card(or a GeForce 2).

Would I be better off trashing my dream of having a GeForce and just get the ATI card or is there a good stand-alone PCI TV card that I can purchase to go along with the GeForce? It has to have a TV tuner and composite and S-Video in and out.
What i really nee is a good card...the best if i can....with good video editing capability..as in capturing and editing....i CAN sacrifice the TV tuner if i have to

  1. I believe the new ASUS Deluxe GeForce3 Card
    has video in and out. But I'm not sure
    how great this card is.
    Also the card I have Elsa Gladiac Ultra
    has an optional Video in&out module that
    you have to purchase seperatly.
    Hope this helps

    Now you can have both. Not only are these cards terrific in all respects, but the prices are reasonable, too. I know many people who use these cards for video capture, and/or to connect an external VCR/TV.

    Check them out, and tell us what you think.

  3. Pinnacle Systems has a <A HREF="http://www.pinnaclesys.com/ProductPage.asp?Product_ID=2" target="_new">Studio DC10+</A> which is a stand-alone PCI TV/capture card. I've heard good things about it but I've never used one. I've seen one at pricewatch for around $90 US.

  4. I've got a Haupauge WinTV-PVR. Its not brilliant. The mpeg encoding quality isn't the best I've seen. Then again it is a all in one solution just around £200.

  5. I think the TV Wonder (full version, not the VE) has all the features and capabilities of the All in Wonder, except that you need to use a separate video card. It whould work fine with your Geforce 3. I believe it has onboard MPEG2 compression, which would make it an ideal solution.
