    Worth Using Old ATi 'All in Wonder' Rage 128 to Archive VHS?

    After digging around online expecting to find decent, dirt cheap TV tuner/capture cards for under 20 bucks, and being put off by reviews, I wondered if it would be worth the effort to ressurect an old machine and put Win 98SE on there so I could use my ancient ATi All in Wonder Rage 128 PCI card...

    Asus Z97M-PLUS vs. Asus H97M-PLUS

    Are there any particular pluses of one of these over the other? Price-wise there's not much in it (at least not in New Zealand). Is one significantly better than the other? Thanks for any advice. :)
