I know this doesn't really have anything to do with Macs, but I thought you pros would be able to answer my question easily.

I love watching all those Halo 2 montages and I'd really like to make them since I always say to myself, "Ah, I wish I had that replay on video" or something like that.

I have no idea what I need to record the Xbox 360 gameplay footage. I've been hearing something about capture cards. Would i need to buy some sort of external component to hook up to my monitor? Can someone explain?

Thanks! :)

buy a tv or video capture for your mac and install it. make sure it has the the right plugs for you xbox i.e. s-video or composite. plug in your xbox and with the software the card came with you can basically see what ever the tv output from your xbox on your mac. Then after that just hit record at the right time and time. You can edit the footage after that.
