Hey guys,

Looking around for a new desktop/laptop at the moment, Normally the WizKid with computers but I'm new to editing!
Would you say a faster processor with integrated graphics would preform better over a system with a low-med end CPU with dedicated graphics, where editing and rendering HD video is concerned?
Thanks :D

Get a great CPU and a dedicated GPU. SORTED.

I wouldn't use a CPU with integrated graphics for anything other than browsing the internet, but then again I'm a pc gamer :p

if you're getting a dedicated graphics card get an nvidia card, they have kuda especially good for video editting preferrably a 550 or minimum 540 for high def.

I'm on Friz' side! Would never get a Macbook, Ok so both are good, But is the CPU alone decent enough for HD rendering? I don't play pc games and I wouldn't want to go out and spend £300 more than I have to for the extra boost

Getting ready to build a new puter as well. What Nvidia card(s) in particular would you suggest?

I was going to go with 8g RAM / Intel Core i5 / SSD hard drive.

I have a top of the line iMac, after saving for years and limping by with a $300 netbook (with 1 gig of RAM... *twitch*).

Now I'm all-- "Rendering? What's that?"

It's amazing.


I still have the little netbook for travel.

Oh, I didn't mean a MacBook, I meant a Mac Pro, the towers, not laptops. There about £2000.

With specs that match a computer you can build yourself for less than half that cost :)

Don't wander too far from the wall outlet though!

True, actually it's always plugged in. I sit back on my comfy sofa whilst editing. Used to get back ache at a desktop (and it took up too much room) This thing is soooo quick too.
