    Video card recommendation?

    kevin921hs

      All - Just getting started with a new build, and video editing.  I put together the following machine: Intel i5 quad-core, 8 GB RAM, ASUS Z68 board, running Windows 7 64-bit.  I want to give Premiere Elements a try but figure to be fair to it, I should have a decent GPU. 

       

      I'm trying to avoid buying "too much" GPU though.  What should I look for, with my machine and Premiere Elements' capabilities in mind?  NVIDIA vs AMD? What chipset, onboard memory, etc?

       

      I'll be working mostly with AVCHD shot with my Canon camcorder.  Output will primarily be an HD format for viewing on TV/monitor, and possibly burning to DVD though not blu-ray.
