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.

I have a feeling that the 2 x cpu rig is going to be faster.

Yeah, as working station for editing video, you'll need a strong CPU, another vote for dual cpu rig...
