I understood that the nvidia quadro FX 1700 is the one to aim for
for video editing . This card is out of my leage and I am also not shure
I need it in a ~ $1200 system for family movies editing and some
pictures [ no game playing].
The step down card is the new 580 Does anybody tried it out
or the previus 570 ?
Should I go for that or for something like a 9800 card ???

Video editing is both GPU and CPU intensive. Don't skimp too much on either one. If you can afford it step up to a GTX260 or 275 and as for the CPU look for AMD Phenom II X4 quad or an Intel Core 2 Quad as an i7 system may be out of the $1200 price range.


Gl and let us know what you end up with.

I still dont get it:
Some say that for video editing you dont need a strong graphics card...
that a 8800 is an overkill...

Thanks Irish , Look at this

it depends what type of vidoe editing, normally such a task can be taken on by a "gaming system"

I depends on who you talk to. My line of thinking is If I can get a card for about 150 to do what I need it to then that is perfect. You could prob get away with an 8800 but if you keep computers for a long time then it may be out dated sooner rather than later.

From what I remember is that the Fx cards are coded differently for workstation applications and Multiple monitor use, more than 3 on 1 card kind of thing, where as the the consumer version is more suited toward today's applications, and games. I video edit off of a GTS 250 and before that it was a 7800 gtx, I also game a edit photos. You don't have to go hog wild with the GPU just don't skimp either.



IMO i would go with a non-workstation card unless that's what your building.

Hi, I have a quadro 570 and it seems to hold up fairly well but right now am having problems with burning AVCHD to DVD-R and that I think is just the Cyberlink software that is letting a lot of people down. The card has been stellar for watching movies and all other activities. It never let me down with standard definition videos and has crashed once or twice but boots right back up again. I am using dual monitors with the primary one being a Sony 32" Lcd television. I have upscaled the resolution to 1720 0r something like that then with the Nvidia control panel resized the image to fit the screen. When I boot up the computer it shows 1920x1080p on my monitor. So all in all the card is doing a lot of work without failing. The newer 580 is cheaper than the 570 and has double the onboard memory. A site I visited that is solely about video editing recommends Quadro fx as the only way to go for video editing on a PC.
