Icon4 GPU for AVCHD Video Editing


I have a system with the following specs:

Intel Core 2-duo E-4500 @2.20 ghz

2 GB Ram (will upgrade to 4 or 6 GB)

Asus p5qpl Am motherboard

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Viewsonic VA226w monitor (1680x1050 resolution)

Generic 500w PSU

---------------------
Now I have a new Sony HX9v camera which records excellent video in AVCHD format (1920x1080p 50fps at 28mbps bitrate). Upon transferring this video to my computer, the system cannot even play this video properly, let alone edit, even on a Sony Vegas Elements editing software (which is supposed to be the best for editing video from Sony consumer cameras)

So I have decided to go for a graphics card so I can get better editing performance (gaming would be secondary for me).

After much googling I have arrived at the HD 6790 card for about Rs 7200, but all the reviews so far benchmark only against gaming performance, and hardly mention video editing. SO my question to experts is, are there different cards which would be better for my purposes, keeping a budget of 7k in mind? Or is this a good choice?

Thank you all in advance for your replies.

6790 is really good card for the budget. But your cpu will cause bottleneck.
For editing you need atleast 4gb ram

If I get an additional 4 gb RAM (making it 6 GB total) will the CPU be able to handle the 6790? If not, which card do you suggest for this cpu?

will the 6770 be suitable for my needs?

I need a card which will last me for at least 3 years and still be adequate when I upgrade the CPU.

Thanx.

Re: GPU for AVCHD Video Editing

EDIT: I just opened my case and checked, I have a VIP 400R PSU.


These are the connectors that are free:



Is this enough to power a graphics card?
