if you are capturing DV footage you won't need a video card. You will be using firewire to transfer. If you are transferring analog footage you will need a video card that has the red, white, yellow RCA connectors that break out from the 1/8" camera output. I use an ATI all in wonder for those. There are many models in that line. You could probably use the most basic one that has those connectors. You are going to be using the capture function in Vegas to capture through those connections. Also if you have a digi8 camera, it probably has firewire out. In which case you could plug in your hi8 tapes and transfer through firewire w/o a video card.
