Default Waste of money for video editing?

Is it a waste of money buying a 7800GT over a 6800GT for video editing... I know I could take advantage of the HDTV out and the video in but would I need the performance advantage?

well it depends on how pro you want to go, if your are really serious about editing and do it as more than just an occaisonal thing, you should really look at the nvidia Quadro line-up, the 7800 is essentially a high priced candy to sucker in gamers, when not all of them actually need the card. and by no means am i saying that the 7800 is a bad card.

No, the 7800gt over the 6800gt isn't needed, the 68 is fine
