    Something so that I can take my Camcorder after taping my brothers Football games and then Save it to hard drive...

    I would not be saving the whole game, just the 15 (or so) best plays...

    I also need an editing program, something to add effects and cut and splice effectively...

    Any idea?

    thanks...

    How much money do you feel like spending on it?

    Can you show me an example?

    The computer I am running is an Intel Celeron 733mhz with 128 ram and 10 gigs...

    No, I wish it did.

    It only has the analog out to go to the TV...

    Well I'm not a video expert when it comes to doing it old-school style (no digital camera) but you can go to compusa, best buy, etc, and I know they will have several things that will do exactly what you are looking for. I would go there with no money, for research only at first though. Honestly researching stuff for yourself will get you the best deal. Don't rely on OT to tell you what you want.

    I asked because I didnt even know what is out there...

    Whatever it is I will learn how to use it and am pretty handy... I just have never done or have ever seen anyone do this...

    I use my ATI All-In-Wonder to do that exact thing.

    It has both S-video in as well as RCA inputs. The ati multimedia center is fully capable of recording the video in all different kinds of formats and it comes packaged with Pinnacle studio to edit the video as well.

    I think you might be able to get what you want for cheaper, but considering this comes with a pretty good 64MB video card with dvi output, a built in tv tuner and an awesome RF remote all for $135 with free second day shipping from googlegear, it's a really good deal and only takes up one agp (or pci) slot.

    Reviews can be found all over.

    I suggest this for your budget

    http://www.datavideo-tek.com/navigation_frames/dac-100/entire.htm

    You can get it all day on ebay for about $180

    Rock Solid Captures and no audio sync problems alot of the cheaper devices have.

    It actually converts the analog signal to DV, so as far as your computer is concerned it is hooked up to a Digital Camcorder.
