    Default Which graphics ard ?

    I'm thinking of uprating my graphics card,i currently use a nvidia 8400gs,but think i could do with something better for editing HD footage.
    What would be a good graphics card up to about 125.
    Thanks

    A vegas editing system does not benefit from a superfast g card. Vegas does not use the gpu for much and I would say yours is plenty powerfull enough.

    Mine is only a 6200 LE.

    I don't understand that Vegas does not use graphics cards to speed up rendering and the like. Does anybody know if this will be implemented one day? It's pretty stupid Vegas doesn't support it in my opinion, After Effects doesn't either I believe.

    The only video-related program I have read about that does support this, is a live VJ-ing tool for Mac, I can't recall its name right now though.

    If you want to shell out your hard earned then the Saphire cards HD 3850 seem a good card within your price even for the 512 mb 256 bit offering beware though you dont buy a 3rd party card as they always seem to have massive fans and take up your PCIe slots you may need.

    I bought mine from ARIA FOR 124.00
