I just purchsed a few of these which seem to work fine.
the hauppauge ImpaceVCB board
I purchased the one with a single composite input and 3 RCA video
inputs. There are a few models and they are all "dual crystal"
supporting ntsc and pal.
some of the tech specs on the chip:
The ImpactVCB board provides image capture from a desk top CCD camera or
other analog input. Impact VCB board is a small 1/3 height PCI board
based on the Conexant 878A video digitizer chip. It requires a
bus-master PCI slot.
