What you are describing is a capture card. they sell them all over, you just need to find one with the right plugs on it.

If you aren't afraid to unplug the computer and crack the case I suggest a pci card.
They are just generally more stable and have less problems.
Make sure the one you get states it's fully compatible with win 7 x64
