capture card 1080p but play 2560 x 1600

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi there first off id like to say thanks in advance for any help I can get. I am new and couldn't find a specific place for capture cards so I posted here.

I was looking at buying an AVerMedia C985 Live Gamer HD 1080p capture card (goo.gl/tpsq8X). However I have a small problem;
can I play pc games at >1080p (e.g. so the video card outputs 2560x1600 to my monitor but capture quality is 1080p) AND still have the card record 1080p?
is it possible with this card? If not could you recommend something hardware based to suit my needs?

Do you need a card, or would you look at a software solution? I use this: http://mirillis.com/en/products/action.html Play at 1440p, record at 720p and 1080p just fine

I would prefer a hardware solution as it can compress the file without taxing too heavily on performance in game. The software may say it doesn't impact performance too much but a hardware solution is far ahead in terms of resource efficiency.

So with this I can run a dvi cable from my gpu to my monitor and then run an hdmi cable from my gpu to the box and it will record my gameplay? Is that how it will work?

Fair enough. If you ever decide to try it there's a trial you can run. Hope you find a good one!

Thats my understanding from what I have read. I own one but have not took it out of the box yet.

If thats the case would I not be able to do the same thing with the avermedia? And just set it up as if it were a second monitor mirroring the first
