    Hey guys!
    I'm looking to record some games for my YT channel. Some people have suggested I buy the HD PVR, do you think it's better than the elgato orrrrrr? what's the best capture card currently?

    Thanks so much!

    I would say the avermedia capture card, you can get internal or external cards (internal is much better as its direct to PCI-e).

    have a look at their range they have got some seriously powerful cards, Also take into consideration with the launch of the GTX1080 that card is a good price for a VERY powerful GPU, this card will not only increase your games performances but you could use a software solution with that card such as shadowplay / OBS / plays.tv. personally i love shadow play perfect capturing with 0 FPS reduction
