Well the PC i'm building is pretty much ready but I've been thinking about my GPU and I wanna know whats the best GPU to get that I can edit and produce HD videos with (which is the main purpose) while having small games like mw2 black ops etc?

Im running a system w/ :

8 GB Ram
1TB
i7 950
650W

& Everything in my system is SLI / Crossfire Ready because I will eventually get a second card.

Thanks

Whats your budget? What software do you use?

If it's anything CUDA accelerate you'll need to go Nvidia. Cheapest would be a GTX 460 at ~$200.

Zotac is a perfectly good company which has a lifetime warranty.

EVGA cards are not worth more than PNY, Zotac, Asus or Gigabyte. Same with factory OC cards. Paying people to push a few buttons for you is kinda silly.

Regardless, any suggestion from $240-$350 range would be the gtx 470.

470 GTX Superclocked $249 after MIR

I'll disagree with the poster above on the paying for someone else to push a few buttons. As some one who's been there and done that .... and had a card replaced because it couldn't hold the guaranteed overclock, that guarantee has a monetary value. At $10 .... as in the link above, I'll gladly pay it .... if it was $50 I wouldn't.
