    I'm running Windows Vista 32bit on an hp 30" at 2560x1600 (widescreen).
    I'm looking for a tv capture device (it can be either a card, or external) that will pick up tv in up to 1920x1200. Probably external is easier, via usb or whatever. I know some are just analog, which means I need a cable box in 2009, so avoiding that issue would be great.
    I basically want my monitor to double as a tv. I'm hoping to be able to hook up my xbox 360 and ps3. A tuner box with a component input and/or hdmi input for the consoles would be awesome.
    Capturing isn't as important as watching for me, and I know that some cards have a few seconds 'lag' in their output, which obviously wouldn't work with real-time gaming.

    Thanks so much for your help guys! :)
