Sapphire Radeon X1650 PRO for HDV editing? URGENT!

    Hi, I'm sorry if I have just posted an urgent question, but I have so
    little time to decide.
    I am assembling a new PC with Canopus NX card for HVV editing and I'd
    like to know if Sapphire Radeon X1650 PRO is a good graphic card for
    HDV editing: I am afraid it is too much cheap. With my PC I will make
    other works too, not only HDV videoediting.
    Can you tell me if it is ok?
    I have a full HD 24" monitor, is that vedeo card ok?
    Will it be sufficient to work fine with HDV?

    The Vid cards listed for it on the Canopus site have
    ATI R9700Pro and X600 as compatible, so your
    X1650Pro with it's 256mb of DDR-3, should work
    just fine. In fact some of its features may go unused
    with the NX and expansion cards in play.

  3. Video editing is NOT a high-demand application from the perspective of
    the video card. Any video card is ok. Even low-end chipset video, as
    long as it supports the resolution and interface(s) that you will be using.

    One thing that you might want if you are editing protected content is a
    card that supports HDCP (copy protection). However, there are very,
    very few of these available at this time.
