I'm looking for a second computer to use in creating and editing short animations and video. I will be using Sony Vegas as a video editor. Among the software requirements it states "OHCI-compatible i.LINK® connector*/IEEE-1394DV card (for DV and HDV capture and print-to-tape)"

eCost currently has a large number of refurbished/recertified HP computers that have adequate processors, ram and hard disc space. They all state they have Nvidia GeForce 9100 graphics card.

I don't know what an i.Link connector/IEEE-1394DV card is.Does it replace the graphics card? Or does it work in addition to the graphics card? Would I be able to add the i.LINK® connector*/IEEE-1394DV card to an HP computer?

I've seen many used gaming computer with fast processorsors and high ram for sale in my area through Craigslist but I hesitate to buy anything because I don't know what to ask in regards to this i.LINK® connector*/IEEE-1394DV card. I'll be grateful for any advice.
