So I'm trying to record the audio and video from a video game simultaneously with the audio from my microphone.
I was thinking of using Turtle Beaches along with a capture card.
Here's a diagram from the headphones.

If I take the mic output cord (pink one), plug it into this thing

at the CH 1 1/8" input and plug the RCA from my Xbox into the Ch 2 RCA, can I take hook up the RCA output to the capture card and record the audio from my game and my headset and the same time?

Appreciate any help! Thanks!

Yes, you need a small mixer. But you'll do better with a single mixer that has microphone and line inputs, versus a kludge of all those separate parts. This is a high quality unit:
