Hello Gents,

I am thinking about buying a Black Magic Intensity Pro PCIe card for the soul purpose of recording 720P PC gaming i.e MW2, WoW.

I have yet to find if this device can delivery, I have however found tons of into about how it will connect and record with a xbox 360. (i don't own a xbox so this does not interest me)

my setup is as follows.

Windows 7 64bit, 4GB Ram, GTX260, and a 37" 1080p Samsung HDTV (this is my only connected screen). I connect my HDTV using HDMI. --> DVI-D (Graphics card GTX260)
Creative sound card 5.1 speakers set.
I do have a small hard drive, I do plan on buying a 1TB ext WD drive, that all captured content can be saved to.

so my question.

how do I record PC Gameplay from my HDTV using the Black Magic Intensity Pro? and how would I record Audio? so that its in-sync.

best regards.
Tom

Recording gameplay from a pc is easier than that. Theres a good program called fraps which records games on your pc via software, with only minimal lag (It does drop your framerate down to 30fps or whatever you set it to though)

(I don't work for fraps, sorry if this sounds like an ad, but it is a really really good program)

Fraps vs Dazzle vs Black Magic etc

Either way I recommend installing a 2nd fast HDD like the Samsung F3 1 TB or Western Digital Black inside your PC connected via SATA (rather then external USB) and record to that drive rather than the drive your games and windows are running off.

I have tried Fraps and I dislike it, my goal is to do ture HD recordings of game play.

thanks for the suggestion.
