Will a graphics card improve my video RECORDING quality?
 
I am recording videos using my Logitech 9000 webcam and a Samson CO1U usb microphone. I use Debut Video Capture. The quality of the sound is passable (I am waiting for a new sound card to arrive), but the video is atrocious - probably one frame per second. Would purchasing a graphics card help improve the quality? I am running on an ASUS on board card from nearly ten years ago.

I think it is your webcam, not your graphics card. I believe its the webcam's connection to the computer that is lacking.

That can't be the case, because when I use the webcam software, the camera works but the audio is terrible.

I never heard of a video card having to do with good quality of a webcamera. I would honestly just shell out some big buxs for a webcam if you really want crystal clear clean images.

To fix the sound, too, get a better speaker.

I actually have a pretty nice Webcam (the Logitech 9000 Pro). The issue is that the framerate is really low while recording. The quality of the picture is very high, my computer just can't support the memory load that the webcam puts on it. I'm wondering what kind of hardware I need to give the webcam what it needs.

i would say that it probably has nothing to do with your graphics card and everything to do with the speed of your processor. try to reduce the quality of capture in both video and audio.

what are your computer specs?

I think that CPU is your downfall. It can't render fast enough.

I was thinkn a little of both, its 2gb enough to handle that load if the quality is that good.
