Hey guys, I seem to be experiencing a bottleneck while editing with my custom build and wonder what portion of my system is causing it. I have a hunch it might be the video card but just to be safe I figured I would ask some people who are more experienced in this.
Anyhow, I'm trying to run dual monitors at 1080p with the second monitor being used to preview at best quality on Sony Vegas Pro 11. I don't have a fps counter running but just judging by eye I can tell it's probably 10-15 fps at best when I apply the settings.
Intel i5 3470 @3.2 ghz (3.6 ghz turbo)
16 gigs of 1600mhz ram (2 sticks) with a CAS latency of 10
60 GB kingston v300 SSD for the OS and Vegas
2 TB Western Digital Caviar black HDD for storage
Nvidia GTX 660 Superclocked (2 gigs GDDR5)
If it's the videocard, would it be possible to remedy with just a second 660? I have a power supply that can support the load.
