Just curious but if you have a LOT of RAM on your PC, will that serve almost as well as a lot of RAM on your video card? Or, if the video is built into the MB- and you have loads of RAM, will this be almost as good as a good video card?
I've decided to go for a new PC. Proably the Dell XPS 8700 Special Edition (http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-8700/pd?oc=fdcwgs105r&model_id=xps-8700#overrides=fdcwgs105r:1002~OPRO13M;5827~A7578685) and load it with 24 G of RAM, it comes with a Radeon card with 2 G on it, I'll get the fastest CPU, the 24" monitor with 1920×1200 res., a 256 G SSD boot drive and a 2 or 3 G second drive— and, I think, Windows 8.1. So far I haven't heard any complications with that OS regarding video editing, though it'll take me awhile to get used to a very different OS. This is pushing my budget- but looking at it as a multi year item, it's not so bad. I'm just playing around with video, since '08- still a rank amateur, but I might get inspired with a hot PC that can handle HD editing.
