Workstation GPU for Sony Vegas Tags: Graphics Cards Video Editing Workstations Graphics Product Last response: October 6, 2010 11:47 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Aircraft123 October 6, 2010 11:22:21 PM Hello all, I have a friend who has a machine that we built that he uses for video editing. Specs are as follows: Antec 300 case Foxconn 780G Mobo 4 GB DDR2 800 Phenom II X6 1055T XFX 9800GT He wants to upgrade his graphics card. I suggested that he get a workstation card since he does mostly video editing on the computer and no gaming. The only program he mentioned using is Sony Vegas. (I asked him what other software he uses and will update when he tells me) I am a bit of an AMD fan and the FirePro cards seem to pack much more performance for the price than do the quadro cards. the cards I was looking at were the: Firepro V4800, and V5800 Quadro FX 580 and 1800 The only thing is I don't know if the FirePro card will help at all in Sony Vegas. Could someone please help me choose which of these cards to recommend to him if at all? Or if you know of another model that would be better I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance, Robert More about : workstation gpu sony vegas killerchickens October 6, 2010 11:47:56 PM Nvidia seem to be doing a lot better with their workstation drivers. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/quadro-5000-firepro...
