So I've been wanting to make some YouTube videos for a while now, and while I could do PC gaming since I have that setup going for me. I want to be able to do some Console videos as well, specifically Wii U, and later on Nintendo Switch videos.

Right now I have some Smash 4 videos in mind, and I'd like to have a capture card to record it in good quality. While I would use the replay system to do acquire footage, I would imagine it would be easier to be able to record it. And Smash 4 Wii U's replay system of uploading to YouTube it only uploads the video at 720p 30fps. Which while it's not terrible, it still takes a long time to do with that method. And I personally believe a fighting game like smash 4 should be shown in 60 fps.

I've done a bit of research and apparently the Elgato Game Capture card is popular, so I have my eye on buying one. However I've found 3 different versions of it so i'm confused on which one I should buy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/elgato-game-capture-hd60-s-black/5187800.p?skuId=5187800   http://www.bestbuy.com/site/elgato-game-capture-hd60-multi/7634008.p?skuId=7634008   http://www.bestbuy.com/site/elgato-game-capture-hd/8838042.p?skuId=8838042

Anyone happen to know which capture card out of these would be the best? Quality wise and Money wise.

The first one (HD60-S) is probably the best of the three. The last two run USB 2.0, however the third one can run older gen games unless it comes with some sort of adapter for component cables. The third one is the one I own and I'm satisfied with it because it allows me to work with PS2 and Wii games even though I don't get 1080p60fps but the first one is probably the best quality for PS4/WiiU/Xbox1/PS3/360. You may want to look into the PS3 compatibility though, because I need a different wire to connect my PS3 on the third one (thankfully one it comes with).

Thanks for the reply Lord Raven. I'll definitely be going with the HD60 or HD60-S for the 1080p 60fps quality sake.

And since I'm primarily planning on Wii U recording, I don't think I'll need to worry about the extra cable for PS3 (Since I'm a Nintendo/PC Only boi).

I'll most likely go with the HD60 since I probably wont need the USB 3.0 considering my PC only has 2.0 Ports
