We have to start with "What do you have?" Is your Radeon a VIVO (video in video out)? This would give you inputs for a VCR. Just use an RCA cable to hook your VCR to the card. Then you need software, Windows Movie Maker will do it, or many other programs. You may run into problems with copyright protection, this can be dealt with somewhat using older drivers (if possible) but we'll get to that if/when you run into it.

Buy a dedicated capture card that is within your budget, some will also have hardware encoding onboard.

Do not buy an AIW just for this as the software support is poor and you can not guarantee that the compatability with your other hardware will give you trouble free and good captures.

If you read "two years ago" that AIW's aren't being made, this was wrong. They're still on the shelves, we're thinking they might disappear soon. You don't need an AIW though.

Both ATI and NVidia have VIVO cards, I suggested it because if you had one, then you really don't need to get anything. Most, I think, cards have come with a VIVO version. So OK you don't have one, you need some way to feed video into your computer.

How much do you want to spend on this? You could buy a very cheap, couple year old pci card like an old tvwonder, it may not encode very fast most/all the work is happening in software by your cpu. If you have a lot of video tapes then a dedicated hardware card, like Pinnacle Studio, would be better but you also spend more.

Free software is pretty basic, but if you just want to capture it's fine. If you want to edit it, or reencode it to a different format then you want something better. Adobe Premier Elements is what I have, it's consumer level but pretty decent and more options and tools than I've found out how to use in a year.

The thing about getting a TV tuner card, after your project is done, you may still want to use it for other things, like, well, watching tv. If this is just a one time project and you don't care about later, spending some cash on a decent hardware capture card and then you could probably sell it to someone and recover some of your cash.
