I'm planning to buy a new PC, probably with Athlon at ~2Ghz and 512 MB RAM. I don't have a lot of money, so I'm wondering whether I need a real video card or can work well with 32MB of integrated (shared) video memory.
How does a video card affect work in LW? What aspect would benefit most?
I'm planning to do a huge amount of modelling, animation, and VFX for a miniDV movie, and would seriously consider spending some money on an AGP card if it will mean reasobable render speeds.
Would 64 MB of VRAM suffice?
Are there any specific cards you'd recommend? I really can't afford to spend more than the bare minumum on this.
