These capture cards come with a low input lag, giving you meager response time.

Most of the capture card support, Windows 7 & above, also supports Mac OS X & Linux.

Usually, Capture Cards cost $50 & above. You can also find a decent Capture Card that can support 4K 60fps game captures for modern gaming consoles.

But for Nintendo Switch, Capture Card support 1080p 60fps is just perfect.

You can attach an HDMI cable from the console to the capture card, & other HDMI from Capture Card to the monitor and USB to the PC for storing the gameplay footage.
