Rating: 8.0.

AVerMedia have catered to the new aspiring streamers or youtubers with the very affordable, 1080p 60FPS GC311 Live Gamer Mini (Portable) external capture card which is retailed at a price of £109.99. This puts it at £30 cheaper than the competing Elgato HD60s capture card. The AVerMedia GC311 seems to be an ideal addition to a setup if you plan to stream/record lag free, 1080p 60FPS on paper but does it tick all of the boxes for a good quality and complication free set up.
