So after talking with my brother, who is looking to invest in new video equipment, I was looking at trying to see what components have the most impact on video editing rigs. There are a lot of great suggestions on parts and stuff like that on the forum, but no real benchmarks on what components make the biggest impact on video editing programs like the Adobe Suite. I found this video while looking stuff up and doing research so when the time comes I will be able to make informed decisions on what hardware to buy.

The guy goes over the parts he has, and he does a what is essentially a real world benchmark of his rig in the Adobe suite, going over the bottlenecks in his system, and in fact his video had the easiest explaination of system bottlenecks in a real world application that I have ever seen. It was an easy to follow video and the guy even overclocked the 3930k that he was running haha. This video also answered my question about what kind of a graphics card is needed in an editing rig, and what kind of real world effect it has.

So if youre looking at video editing as a possibility on your rig, check this video out, it starts slow but it was so good that I had to share it with all of you guys on the forum! smile.gif
