Opinion- Best card for video transcoding/editing Tags: Graphics Cards Nvidia Graphics Last response: August 4, 2009 8:15 PM in Graphics & Displays Share jstemper August 4, 2009 7:08:36 PM I am trying to decide between a Nvidia GTX 260 core 260 and a Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+. (Both would be EVGA cards @$150 or less) The machine is an AMD dual core w/8 gig of memory running Vista 64, soon to be Windows 7. The primary purpose will be video transcoding from h264 (AVHCD) to MPG or AVI using Media Encoder. I will also be attempting some video editing. Game play will be minimal to none. Will the GTX260 give me a noticeably higher transcode rate then the 9800 GTX+. Thanks for any suggestions or thoughts.
