From what I have learned, the rendering process relies pretty much solely on your CPU and some of the RAM. This is why it’s important to get a mutli-core high Ghz processor if you are going to be doing a lot of video editing.

Everything else while you are actually editing, watching,and/or previewing the video relies on both the graphics card and CPU. If you are using adobe CS5 with the Mercury Playback Engine a lot more of the stress is put onto your graphics card (if it is within the reccomendations of Adobe) while previewing the video.
