    None. I used to religously follow PC trends and spend a fortune on making my own PCs (I briefly worked for a system builder a long time ago). These days I appreciate the beauty of editing on the move, for example editing on a train or the front room by using a laptop. So I use an onboard graphics chip. I'll let you into a secret. It doesn't make my videos any worse.

    apparently nvidia has technology that has GPUs speeding up the encoding process taking away some burden from the CPU

    I use a 7900GTX. I do a bit of gaming, that's the only reason I have it. Otherwise I'd have just got a 6200 or something, lol.

    Both of the desktops I have don't have video/graphic cards as they are built into the motherboard. I would use one but the PCI slots have Firewire and audio cards in them, so I haven't got any empty slots. I've been editing using these computers for the past 3 years and have never needed a video/graphic card. Using Firewire and now SDHC memory cards and a card reader from Argos costing 20 quid is all I need.
