    When you re capturing video through a capture card, which is a separate card from the video card, does the video card get used at all. Or is all the processing going through the capture card, mem and CPU?

    I believe the latter may hold (all processing going through capture card, mem and cpu..) unless of course the vid card is echoing what's being captured on your screen.... then I don't know.
