Thread: Editing with Integrated Graphics Card

  1. #1

    Default Editing with Integrated Graphics Card

    Does anyone have experience of Movie Maker, Vista and integrated graphics cards?I am thinking of buying a laptop with 2gb of memory and an Intel Integrated graphic media accelerator X3100. Or should I go for a nVidia GeForce Go 8400M GS with 128mb dedicated memory?My main use is downloading video from a video camera, editing in Movie Maker and rendering with Nero.Any thoughts are welcome.

    I have a Vista laptop and use movie maker for quick edits etc. Mine has integrated Intel 945 graphics and it works fine. A dedicated graphics card won't make much difference as its main use is to accelerate 3D for games or dependant upon model to accelerate HD movie playback.

    I would save the cash and forget the 8400 Geforce Go, using the savings to get the fastest Core 2 Duo processor laptop within your budget. When you come to output your edit, its all about processor power.
