Re: Which of these cards would work best for media Transcoding?
Almost all transcoding is done by the CPU. Grab a quad and you will be set. Intel has the advantage on this one and always has as their chips seem to handle this task faster.
I have read about CUDA being used for this, but I haven't seen it in action or know what programs use it. If you were to find out then you would want to get the 430, but a 450 or 460 would definitely be better for everything as the 430 is rather low end.
