Need help on Video graphic & capture cards-ple

I am building a new computer based on an Intel P4 3.2E/875 clipset using Asus P4C800-E Delux mother board. The goal is a top end home computer setup and entering the digital photo/video era from the 35mm/8mm/vhs good old days.
The ability to revive old photos, home movies, and vhs tapes with the computer/digital editing and producing DVD's for my extended family will make my near future retirement even more enjoyable.
I have alot to learn, but reviewing the articles and postings on the Video Guys Web site has been extremely helpful, BUT?
Am I correct in the assumption that I need a separate video graphics card and a video capture card for VHS/TV.
I am planning to use an ASUS Radeon 9600 XT/TVD for graphics and have no clue for the capture card. I have read that this card/adapter box often comes with the NLE software package, if so, could someone steer me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Does that Radeon card have video capture on it as well?

The ASUS mobo you have has firewire already, and since you are capturing older analog video your best bet would be to get the Canopus ADVC300 and software.

For software, go with the Vegas5 or get the Adobe Video Collection.

This is a link to the Asus site with the spec's on the graphic card. Apparently it does include Mpeg capture and comes with Cyberlink PowerDirector Pro.

Am I correct is saying that ATI does not recommend using another PCI capture card on the same computer with its AGP capture cards?
If so, the ADVC-300 or another external analog-digital converter would be the way to go. I can tell you that the old Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge works with older ATI All-In-Wonder cards.

correct, it is never a good idea to use a PCI video capture card when your AGP card already does video capture. The ADVC300 is your best bet because it will give you the best quality analog-dv conversion. Other products like the ADVC100 or the Datavideo DAC100 will work as well.
