Hello...
I'm building a new editing computer.
I'll have the Intel i7-6700 (not K) and so it will have some on-board video ability.
My understanding is that the new core CPUs actually have decent hardware acceleration.
My intention is to get a Radeon RX 480, but they are sold out.

In my possession are as follows...
Intel i7-6700 (Intel HD Graphics 530)
GPU Clock: 300 MHz
Boost Clock: 1050 MHz
Memory Clock: System Shared
Memory Size: System Shared
Memory Type: System Shared
Memory Bus: System Shared
Bandwidth: System Dependent
Shading Units: 192
TMUs: 24
ROPs: 3
Pixel Rate: 900 MPixel/s
Texture Rate: 7.20 GTexel/s
Floating-point performance: 115.20 GFLOPS

Radeon x1950 Crossfire Edition
GPU Clock: 650 MHz
Memory Clock: 1000 MHz / 2000 MHz effective
Memory Size: 512 MB
Memory Type: GDDR4
Memory Bus: 256 bit
Bandwidth: 64.0 GB/s
Pixel Shaders: 48
Vertex Shaders: 8
TMUs: 16
ROPs: 16
Pixel Rate: 10.40 GPixel/s
Vertex Rate: 1.300 GVertices/s
Texture Rate: 10.40 GTexel/s

Radeon HD 2400 Pro
GPU Clock: 525 MHz
Memory Clock: 400 MHz / 800 MHz effective
Memory Size: 256 MB
Memory Type: DDR2
Memory Bus: 64 bit
Bandwidth: 6.40 GB/s
Shading Units: 40
TMUs: 4
ROPs: 4
Compute Units: 2
Pixel Rate: 2.100 GPixel/s
Texture Rate: 2.100 GTexel/s
Floating-point performance: 42.00 GFLOPS

Radeon HD 3450
GPU Clock: 600 MHz
Memory Clock: 500 MHz / 1000 MHz effective
Memory Size: 256 MB
Memory Type: DDR2
Memory Bus: 64 bit
Bandwidth: 8.00 GB/s
Shading Units: 40
TMUs: 4
ROPs: 4
Compute Units: 2
Pixel Rate: 2.400 GPixel/s
Texture Rate: 2.400 GTexel/s
Floating-point performance: 48.00 GFLOPS

I'm going to assume that the on-board video will be the best (just judging by the GFLOPS numbers).
Does that seem like the logical choice?

You guessed correctly. Those video cards are absolutely anemic by today's standard. It's not even woth wasting a slot on one of them.

Vegas Pro's minimum requirement is for a GPU with 512MB memory so the Radeon HD 2400 Pro and Radeon HD 3450 don't even meet minimum requirements (i.e., they are useless and won't be recognized).

Just use the onboard GPU if you are waiting on a 480. The RX480 is great on power usage, but not the top in calc speeds. If you want to just stick in a temp card to enable OpenCL/GPU benefits, there is always ebay. I would recommend the following in order:

AMD:
5770 (1360 gflops)
r9-270x
6970
7970-ghz
RX480
r9-290x
R9-390x
R9-FuryX (8600 gflops)

The i7-6700 is around 113 gflops, so if you do any blurs or other GPU effects adding a GPU will help even a modern CPU. If you are planning on running a 4K monitor, then use the onboard GPU, and the add on GPU for compute only. 7970 and above are the only cards to support 4k. There is a difference between display resolution ability and computational performance.
