Default Pinnacle>video card or CPU?

Im using pinnacle studio and its runnig too slow more my tastes. Im thinking about upgrading. I was looking at some better processors until I heard a rumor that Pinnacle relies heavily on the video card.

Can anyone confirm this? The computer Im rendering with has a pretty good CPU and a gig of RAM but it is using intergrated graphics. Should I upgrade the CPU or the video card?

I don't know what is pinnacle studio (sound like a movie editing) but, with a on-board video card... you will absolutly need to upgrade it!

I agree. On-board sound is reasonable, but video is seriously limited on a motherboard and usually doesn't come recommended for anything other than office applications... I have never used os-v but that seems the general consensus.
