Hi, i'm building a new system for recording videos from tv and editing it using programs like Windows Movie Maker, so i wounder which to consider more for faster videos editing, the CPU or VGA?
and what about the new AMD Vision thing?!
Ok thanks man, so one more question if i'll go for AMD Build, will Athlon II X4 do the job or do i need Phenom II X4, or should i go for the Core I3 for my budget... and for the vga, should i go for something like HD 5670 or there's a better Geforce Solution?!
Is your budget that tight? If you can afford it, I would recommend the i5-2500k. Otherwise, you could go with as little as an Athlon X3 - Newegg is selling them for $80, and there is a very good chance you can unlock the 4th core. AMD vision was recommending Athlon X2 for introductory video editing, but I would shy away from something that weak.
Here is another really good option if you live near a MicroCenter: They sell the cheapest CPU's and have a very good deal on AMD CPU/Motherboard combinations.
Yes, I was thinking of the HD Radeon 5670 when mentioning $75. If you are cash strapped, you could even go with a lot less video card like the HD 5450 for under $40. I run two monitors of of one of those just fine. AMD seems to be fairly dominant in this segment.
