now ive bought a 4k panasonic camcorder that recommends at least 8gb memory so i used crucial.com to find more ddr3 memory for my pc ( ive bought 8gb on 1 stick so ill have 12gb total, im told some of the editing of videos is done on a graphics card so what graphics card can my pc take ?
can any graphics card go in a PCIe slot ??
im looking at Nvidea here geforce dot com /hardware[/url] but i dont know what i need..1050/1060/1070/1080ti ?????? prices seem to be between £150 - £700
any help appreciated thanks ( remember i have 12gb ram fitted so how powerful a graphics card will i need to edit 4k videos ??
i need graphics card to play 4k videos, play 3d videos, edit 4k video, tiny chance i might mine cryptocurrency but thats unlikely. also gaming isnt my thing but i just might rarely try something, belarc advisor says i have 3.40 gigahertz Intel Core i7-2600K i may overclock it soon as it used to be overclocked to 4.5gig .
ok i just read a review of a 1070ti here arstechnica dot co dot uk /gadgets/2017/11/nvidia-gtx-1070-ti-review/ i still need reply from any1 can i put any graphics card into my PCIe slot on my motherboard mentioned above in this thread ? i still need help choosing between 1050, 1060, 1070 and 1080 card, prices vary a lot id rather not spend £700 but will if i have to
the Panasonic Camcorder i own is this model here amazon dot co dot uk /Panasonic-HC-VXF990EBK-Camcorder-Wireless-Function/dp/B01AAGIKAK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510269168&sr=8-1&keywords=panasonic+4k+camcorder
in the box they tell us we can download their own software from here av.jpn.support.panasonic dot com /support/global/cs/soft/download/f_ae54.html software is called HD Writer, ive no idea if it uses a graphics card to help !
but ive not downloaded/used it yet ive only had camcorder a few weeks, i am open to buying any software any1 can show me is the best to get as i must learn to edit 4k footage as file sizes are massive so i must be able to upload/send clips to people that arnt crazy huge as sometimes at airshows etc i film for 25minutes in 1 take !!! in 4k that may end up as about a 12gb file !!
im also thinking to buy a program eg sony vegas pro that someone mentioned to me , ive never used it so know nothing about it, i tried playing a 4k movie today it worked for about 20mins then my pc froze and i had to crash it !
currently with my 1080p camcorder i used panasonic hd writer a tiny bit but 99% of my videos go on youtube unedited
i see November issue of CPU mag has a graphics card comparison but its way over my head, if any1 can make sense of all that technical detail please advide me what to buy
thanks for any help
