[Arnie Schlissel] "Dropped frames have absolutely nothing, nada, zilch, to do with your capture card. Dropped frames are completely, 100% the result of your drives not being able to play the material back fast enough. Get a decent drive system and you will not have dropped frames."

I have to disagree here. WHile yes, that is mostly true, if your capture card can't buffer the video fast enough due to having to process/decompress/transcode the video in real time, you might get dropped frames. If your capture card is in the incorrect output format that does not match your timeline, you can get dropped frames. While disk speed has a lot to do with it, it's not 100% the reason for dropped frames.
