Hi,
I was wondering what affects video rendering speed the most: the cpu or the gpu?

Mostly CPU but some software does have GPU accelerated rendering.

Thanks for replying!

What if I were to get a Phenom II 1075T (6 cores) with a mid-range card like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ... ?

^^^Thanks for replying! The reason I went with AMD was because it was very cost-effective... at least for me. As to your suggestion about the x4 processor, I'm going to look into it. Thanks!

Core i5 2500k + hd 5570 = $275 (outperform x6 in video editing)
phenom II x6 1075t + gts 450 = $260 (outperform i5 2500k in games).

Also make sure you have enough memory. For video editing W7 64bit and 8GB or more RAM would help also.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Most good applications use the gpu if it is supported.

More cores doesn't mean faster, it just means a program that has the ability to use all cores might be faster but clock speed is still very important.

A core i7 would have been a good start for a video editor.
