The purpose of AVerMedia HD capture card is for recording console gameplay, you would need it if you want to record your gameplay for stuff like XBOX or PlayStation.

Edit: Ok, I think I know what you're trying to say now, so you're trying to record and stream your console via your PC, correct? If so, then you would still need something like EasyCap in order for the PC to have display input, because every port on the PC will be for output purpose.

Also, you can drop the GPU and CPU to a bit lower, if you won't be gaming on the PC -- even an i5 is sufficient for PC gaming. If only recording, I'd might recommend a GTX 750 ti for it.

I agree with you, I just wasn't sure if just wanted to spend his budget for future proof or he is looking for whatever is enough for capture.

Your pick was perfect for the budget, assuming PC gaming. :)

You won't need near 800Watts -- though that will make it cooler and more energy efficient, since it'll be around half-load at most, but either way, enjoy it! :)
