    Default Video Editing Pc

    I recently went into a computer store in Crewe cheshire asking if they would build me a video editing pc I asked for 2 dual core processors and windows xp pro I also wanted the fastest and biggest GPU for quicker rendering and 4 gigabyte of the quickest ram along with a large capacity hard drive.

    I was told windows xp pro only supports 2 processors and would not recognise the second dual core processor, The person in the shop also told me that video editing is data intensive and not graphic intensive so I would not need a fast or large GPU am I right in thinking this person was talking from his ******** I thought rendering video required a good gpu and cpu including lots of ram is this true many thanks from Kevin Deegan in kidsgrove stoke on trent

    Don't matter what GPU you drop in, NLE editors use RAM and CPU and yes I believe he's right about Xp only being able to use 2 chips, also XP will only allow a max of 4 gig. As soon as the NLE's bring out their 64 bit compatable software, then we will see a large leep forward as XP64 enables upto 128gig RAM.

    Hmmm, well... I think I'm right in saying that some editing software does indeed look for a GPU and uses it if it can. Ordinarly, the statement that you only really need a processor and lots of RAM would be correct, but there are some notable exceptions where a video card can make a difference.
