Vid card question!
on May 7, 2009 at 9:32:03 pm

In following the basic design of the DIY7, what video card in the $250 range would be recommended rather than the Quadro 1700?

I plan to use the latest Vegas and I do a ton of editing in HDV. Fairly moderate use of effects, etc.

What are my cons to stepping down from the 1700?

Thanks!

Vegas does not utilize GPU at all. There is no advantage to using a Quadro card with Vegas. Get a good $200-$250 Radeon on nVidia based graphics card with 256+ Megs of RAM

Awesome bit of info! Thanks!

Although I can't help but wonder...should I go with a software that does utilize GPU? If I save $ by going with a lesser card, am I adding to my work time in rendering or something similar?
