  1. The gt430 may or may not cut it for you. its a pretty weak card. i dont know much about how much power you need fro video editing but just throwing that out there. and here are better cards for 70 bucks such as

    but thats only if you HAVE to get a $70 card.
  2. thanks for the reply.

    that card that you mentioned does look good. i'll probably get that instead of the card i have listed.

    is a video card a big deal for editing? my understanding was that a fast cpu and ram are needed for rendering the video, but not the video card. is there a big advantage to having a faster video card in video editing?
