Hi guys.

I am very quickly trying to put to put together a powerful, yet reasonably priced (under 1200 bucks total...which i am thinking and hoping will be possible, especially with black friday/ cyber monday around the corner) machine. 

I am trying to figure out what is a solid Video Card that won't break the bank. Here is what I need it to do. I am planning on editing a lot of videos on this machine. They are all going to be shot for YouTube and most likely uploaded in full HD 1080P format. 

Please advise!
Also if you have any other input on specs that you recommend (processor, motherboard etc...) I would love to hear it. 

Finally, if you have any experience with Cyber Monday and the online sales from amazon etc that surround Black Friday, could you let me know if I can expect to see things like video cards and processors (computer parts in general) as opposed to whole computers on some serious sales or not.

Thanks a lot!

Video card, unless it is being used to process the video, isn't going to be as big a concern as RAM and CPU when it comes to video processing.

What RKilroy said, though you do want a decent video card, I was running an Nvidia GTX 460 with 16GB of RAM on an AMD 8120 GPU and it took forever for 1080, upgraded to a 7970 and now it moves nice and quick on the processing

Depending on the video editing software you plan to use, the CPU choice would be more important and most of the budget should be allocated to component rather then the graphics card.

I plan on using Adobe Premiere Pro.

 

I just picked up a Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz Socket LGA 1155 Boxed Processor. Is that good enough?

Planning on picking up corsair vengeance 16gb (2x8gb) ddr3 1600mhz. Will that do?

Green Giant recommended the "7970" -- Is this the card in question: SAPPHIRE 21197-00-40G Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card? That thing runs 339 on Newegg.com....is there a better deal for that card else where?

 

Any good motherboard recommendations that wont break the bank for that setup?

 

Thanks a lot!

I recommend picking the CPU you want to run, then the motherboard that supports the CPU, then RAM and the rest of your parts.

 

That said, New Egg has 53 boards just from Asus running from $58 on up.  You need to look for a board that has the features you want/need.  There are many brands out there, Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock, etc.

The 7970 would help you render as Adobe Premiere now fully supports the use of AMD graphics card.
