Default Choosing a Video Capture Device

Hi. I am trying to make a simple choice on a product but it is not turning out to be very straight forward. I want to get a device to copy analog VHS cassettes to digital format on my PC.

It seems easy enough, but when I try to find what I want in particular, I feel as though I am trapped in a labyrinth. I must admit I do not know much about the subject -- what makes one device better than another, etc.

Mostly, I am stuck when I try to find an internal board with a PCI interface that will run with Windows 7. The inputs must be RCA composite because that is the output type on the VCR I have.

It seems that what I find in searches is this: the internal PCI boards with RCA In only support up to XP. Any devices with RCA In for Windows 7 are small, external, portable USB sticks. I really was hoping for an internal PCI video capture card (cant use PCIe slot because it is being used by another device).

I would greatly appreciate if anyone knows a model, or could provide a link to an internal video capture card with, PCI interface, composite RCA Input, supports Windows 7, is made by a decent manufacturer . . . and does not cost an absurd amount of money.

Thanks in advance for any replies,
