I'm confused by the wording of your question. I believe that you're noting that consumer cards are mainly reviewed in the context of gaming, but that you're looking for a good card for video editing. Is that correct?
I don't do video editing, so I can't offer advice there. It may not matter much, unless your software can use the GPU to accelerate some of its processing. If the software supports Cuda, you'd need an nVidia card. AMD is pushing OpenCL, but I have the impression that not much software currently for sale supports that yet.
