AVerMedia C985 Live Gamer HD 1080 Capture Card
If you're looking for an easy solution to capturing HD video up to 1080p from your computer and recording it for later use, then this is as good as it gets. This component installs easily using just a PCIe slot on a motherboard and works with whatever additional hardware you have (such as a dedicated video card and audio card). Once connected, AVerMedia provides intuitive video recording software with various settings you can select for capturing and streaming what you do.
Honestly, this is one of the easiest cards to use because it includes a button that connects to the card and sits outside of your computer to easily stop and start your recording at will, eliminating the need for a hotkey. While the card itself only has a pair of HDMI connections for video, a DVI to HDMI adapter is included so you can use it with DVI connections. A pair of 3.5mm audio ports is included with this card as well.
