This is my first attempt at DV editing I have an onboard firewire connection (MSI KT600)XP3000 160GB H/drive FX5200 G/card 512Mb DDR 400 dual layer DVD writer etc. Will I still need a capture card or just connect via the onboard firewire and use a software program to edit? I will only be using DV not analogue. Thanks for any replies in advance!!

If your video camera has DV-out (FireWire) you won't need a capture card.
