Does a video card improve quality/performance?

Post by DigitalFool »

I was starting to spec out a new computer and the one I'm looking just has a built in, shared video on the mobo. When using HandBrake, is it important to have a good dedicated video card? Will there be a quality increase/performance gain when encoding?

Nope. Maybe in the future but that's probably some way off.
