Recently, I've been playing tetris on NES a lot, and finally decided to buy a physical copy (previously using an emulated copy). I used an EasyCAP I got from Goodwill to display the video out, but after installing it and launching VLC/OBS, I found the picture to be very grainy and slow. This probably won't be that much of an issue, however, I'm thinking of streaming my tetris sessions, and I don't think the graininess will be good for an audience. I'm looking at some pcie capture cards, but all of them are over $100, with the cheapest (modern) one I could find being about $130. I don't really want to deal with the clunk of external options. I don't really care about most of the stuff in the capture card, just if it can put out a good image, and the price (but maybe a hdmi jack would be nice). Does anyone here know any decent pcie capture cards under $100? Or maybe stick with EasyCAP?
I'm not looking to purchase right now, but want to know my options now if/when the time comes for a cheap decent pcie capture card.
