Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager. Your video card will be listed under Display Adapters. Post back with the name.

There might be some confusion about the terms being used. Usually 'video card' refers to the graphics card, the thing that allows you to see anything on the screen. If your graphics card does not have the required 'capture' capabilities, then you will need to add an extra 'video capture card' or 'TV card'. This allows you to watch and record TV programs or VHS videos on your computer, and can be an internal card that slots into your motherboard or an external device that plugs into a spare USB port.

Examples:
Hauppauge WinTV-PVR PCI Interface Tuner Card - $50
VisionTek TV Wonder HD 600 USB Stick - $85
KWorld X-Pert DVD Maker PCI Card - $10 (don't expect very good quality from this, the cheapest option I could find)
