but keep in mind i dont need a great video card because i never play games. i just need a decent one to show decent picture for video editing.


What would you change/add/replace, also what do u think of AM2?

Video editing will require a better card than that, I bet. That's a pretty old video card; why don't you opt for something along the lines of a Nvidia 6600 or ATi X1600?

i have 100 gigs alone in itunes for my ipod, music/videos...and video editing takes up a lot of space and i want to keep the videos on my computer instead of having to put them on dvd then deleting them off the computer...i kno i will never fill it up, but i just dont wanna run out

If you dont need a card for gaming, but one for video editing, I think that this might do the trick

Only 4 pipelines, and decent clock speed, but a massive 512mb GDDR2 ram.

Not sure though..

Looks good! Depends what software you're using to edit videos. For Windows Movie Maker/Pinnacle/Broderbund that should be more than enough
