Ok, I know that the graphics card handles 2D and 3D rendering for the monitor and games, but I was wondering if the graphics card plays any role in video editing.

Part 2 of my question, how do I gauge a graphics card, which points should I compare and can you give me examples of what each level could run?

Ex:
@10 rpm: read email smoothly
@20 rpm: play flash game smoothly
@50 rpm: play runescape? smoothly
@100rpm: play SCII? smoothly
Also include any comments on video playback--high compression formats like MP4

In video editing you need to have a good video card but an even better processor and ram for rendering your videos.

So when deciding the computer build I should put more money on the cpu than the gpu, since I'm not too interested in better gaming?

But can anyone give me a ranking system for graphics cards in general?
>I know manufacturer does play a role in quality, but yeah, is there a ranking system?

Well if youre into modelling and video editing you should get like the quadro nvidia serires or the ati fire pro series.

The gtx,gt,hd series are for gaming :p

Im too lazy to find a scale but you can check it out at http://www.tomshardware.com/
