The optimal combination of CPU and graphic card

Hi everybody!
I need a powerful working station for editing HD video clips each around 2 hours of length.

What will be quicker: 1 processor X5680 and graphic card PNY Quadro FX4800 1536 MB GDDR3-RAM or 2 processors 2 x Intel Xeon Processor X5670 (2,93 GHz, SixCore, 12MB Cache, 64Bit, HT, TB) and graphic card PNY Quadro FX3800 mit 1024 MB GDDR3-RAM.

The prices of both variants are comparable.

  1. Video editing tends to be much more CPU intensive than GPU intensive; the GPU is basically for playback. As long as you've got a powerful, multi-core CPU, and plenty of RAM, you'll get the best results. Hard Drive speeds also impact your performance, so that's something to consider.
  2. Thank you very much!
