Windows 7: Video editing

Video editing

I do a fair bit of video editing and I have recently upgraded the ram to 8gb and gone to win 7 64bit.

I built the pc a few weeks back and have yet to add a card. It appears gaming is the main priority and wonder if anyone has any first hand experience with a good card.

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.

I have been a rank amature video user since the mid 90's using various ULead software, I have now up graded to Corel VideoStudio Pro Editor for my software platform.

In the 90's I had a video card which gave me a panel on the front of the pc for S video plus. this was great as there was no need to keep plugging bits and pieces into the rear of the pc.

So I am now looking for a card which comes with a front access panel which supports 1394 fire wire access, usb and HDMI, 1gb memory. Dual rear out put. I may be asking a lot for 200 but I can stretch it upwards for the right card if needed to around 500.
