Default Computer upgrade?

Hello! First time on forum.

So I'm a gamer. I'm was wanting to use my Compaq Presario SR1650NX for a capture card because I don't have a desktop.

The only problem is that it has a weak processor, no video card, little ram, and a corrupted file system. I have the OS but I have no idea for other components. Can you please see? And If you can't, can you find me an HD capture card for a laptop (mac/windows I have both) that's under $100?

Thanks in advance

You want to record console (360/PS3) footage?

There are things like this that can be hooked into any PC or laptop.

Sys reqs aren't very steep at all either.

If I helped you, give a thanks! ↓
