The Chinese HKVision $80 ebay camera I got conked out after two weeks (it seems to power up and the port lights flash, but no longer responds to attempts to reach it either directly via an IP or the BlueIris software). Looking for something similar that’s decent.

A zoom lens. Most security cameras come with wide angle lenses for mounting above your door, but want coverage for the driveway and street (about 50 feet away).
Also wondering what kind of setup I need to record on a PC. I have a CoreI3 computer with 4GB Ram. It’s OK for just recording or just web browsing, but absolutely chokes when I try to do both at one. I’d eventually like to maybe add a second wide angle camera at the door too.
