Budget/Console (for the Switch) Capture Card

Hi everyone, 

 

I dont tend to stream my console games, but I really wanted to get back into doing so with my Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate gameplay. Does anyone have a cheap-er suggestion for a capture card? I honestly prefer a PCIe but I know theyre expensive. I would say my limit is about the cost of the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD2 (~$150). I wouldnt be doing this for anything but the switch, so nothing crazy like 4k 60fps. I have a relatively powerful system, so im not worried about that. Any suggestions? 

 

[unfortunately, school is draining a lot of my money which is why i am asking this question]

PCIe isn't going to give you any major advancements at 1080P60, I'd keep an eye on eBay or your local classifieds for an HD60 Pro or HD60s.
