Video Editing- What Card???

Hello,

I am going to buy a custom pc from CyberPowerpc for video editing, but I can't decide on what card. Here's all the essential informtion.

Camera: Canon Rebel T2i (Records in 1980p h.264 codec)

Sony Vegas Pro 8

Magic Bullet Looks or Magic Bullet Mojo

CPU: Intel i7 or i5

I need to know if GeForce video cards are good for video editing, and playing back preview video well, while editing. Also, how does it affect rendering?

I've heard Quadro is better for 3D. I won't be doing that.

THANKS!!!

  1. yessssss, nvidia Quadro the best card for the video editing my friend

  2. Intel i7...Sony Vegas Pro 9....cameras.....Canon EOS 5D Mark II , Canon Rebel T2i or Nikon D5000 (with 18-55mm lens)
  3. I should have mentioned something else, I can't spend a lot on a Quadro Card if I get one. So, would I be better off:

    -buying one Quadro card, such as the Quadro 580

    OR

    -get two SLI GeForce cards with PureVideo HD, or two GeForce 9800 GTX's?

    basically, would I be better off with two GeForce Cards vs one low end Quadro
  4. Yes, Quadro cards are MORE expensive than gaming card, but gaming cards can handle 3D works quite good as long as you has a FAST CPU, so i7 cpu is a good choice.
    You can buy GTX460 for just about $210 and that card should handle 3D (rendering) works just fine. :)
