Hey guys,

I’m just trying to finish up my editing station and I’m trying to decide on capture devices. Should I go with a firewire card like this for digital?

SIIG FireWire 800 3-Port PCIe

And something like this for everything else?

Kworld DV/AV EXPERT TV STEREO
or
Kworld Video Magician

Are these good options? What are some others? What are you guys using? I’m very open to suggestions. Thanks.
