Unfortunately, Main Concept MP4 only supports very old video cards circa 2010. I would recommend using an ATI Radeon HD 5870 if you can find one. ATI will perform better than NVIDIA overall in Vegas Pro. I think you can go up to the Radeon HD 6xxx series bit not 7xxx or above. I know the Radeon HD 5870 works because I have one and it performs great.

Thank you John, I had been reading around and had see that older cards worked better but I needed someone who had experienced it first hand and your explanation finally makes sense to me, I really appreciate your answer and I will be searching now for a Radeon HD 6000 series online, thank you very much.

You're welcome.

I just double-checked the forum and the recommended 6000 series cards that the MainConcept AVC encoder will utilize are the:

6900 Series (6970, 6950)
6800 Series (6870, 6850)

I know the 7000 series doesn't work because I also have a Radeon HD 7950 and MainConcept will not use it.

Great, I was looking to get a AMD Radeon HD 6850, HD 6970 or HD 6990, they are inexpensive on Ebay, thanks for all the help and prompt input, I think I will go with the HD 6970, thanks a million John.
