    Looking to maximize performance...What affects smooth quality play back? GPU or CPU

    mystickid Level 1

      I kind of alluded to this earlier. Here are my current PC specs.


      HP 510t

      Windows 7 Home Premium x64 bit

      12GB Ram

      i7 2600 CPU @3.4 GHz

      Radeon ATI HD 5570

      Seagate FreeAgent Go Flex External harddrive @7200rpm (as the Source Disk for my DSLR video files ) My export location is the C: drive on my computer' s internal harddrive.


      So, I'd like to maximize my performance on this system and I'm willing to upgrademy video card to the mercury engine compatible Nvidia GTX570.


      Do I have any bottle neck effect on this current set up?


      Even withese specs I'm getting choppy playback on my dslr .mov files.   When I color correct clips, they either feeze or play smoothly after abt 30 seconds.


      In order to get smooth playback, should i upgrade my cpu or gpu (graphics card)?
