Whilst all systems I maintain are on DVR's or dedicated servers this little
card seems to fit the bill
 and a college who has one says it works fine on his PC running winXP and
using 4 cheep cameras.
Your domes are reasonable quality but are fixed focus so watch where you
mount them or you may be dissapointed.

As for your garden monitoring a cheep alternative I have used is a outside
flood light with pir.Just disconnect the light and use the pir to switch an
internal light or sounder.(DIY stores sometimes have one with a remote
internal buzzer for around 8)
Don't do this if you are not competent working on 240v equipment.

Even cheaper is to buy a standalone PIR from somewhere like Screwfix with
prices ranging from 9 to 19 depending on how sophisticated you want it. Go
to and look for item codes 11291, 36316, 67094, 16597 &

The buzzers they sell though are for low voltage doorbells but you can
always wire it to operate through a relay.
