Hello

Can someone point me in the right direction for what specification I need to look for in a PCI Express Video Card for Win 7 Desktop, 8GB RAM, and a I5-2500 CPU please

Prefer it to be in the ATI type I got lost when I saw the breakdown of the ATI models.

Thanks

Hello Chronus

Budget I would say upto £100 but prefer something arround £60 - £80 if at all possible if it has to be nearer the £100 then ok.

Its for use of my son age 14 who is into making his own video clips, he's good but struggling on our old Packard Bell machine, I don't let him on my machines and prefer him to have is own.

Thanks for calling in

For video editing you generally only need a mediocre graphics card the RAM and CPU are far more important so I would look for the best for your budget.
