Video Editing and Rendering help

I work in a computer lab. Unfortunately we're having some major problems with our video editing software because the computers are kinda crappy. Things freeze, play back is majorly choppy. So my question is this. If we bought new video cards for the computers to replace the onboard graphics which I'm pretty sure is 32bit would we get better performance? Or does the graphics card have very little to do with rendering? I honestly don't know why it's so slow because we're using 1.5 gigs of ram, and have 3.3 gig processors. I'm guessing it's since their celerons. Any help would be appreciated. O and we're using a cheap low resource program called ulead movie studio.

The graphics card has a lot to do with video performance. In fact it's probably the single biggest factor. I would never use onboard video for video-intensive applications.

Ulead VideoStudio is a very good product if that's what you're using.

Go buy a decent video card for one computer and see if that helps.

Yeah video card has to do with rendering video, but very little(basically nothing) to do with editing it, that's almost all CPU. But really depends on exactly what you're doing. Editing and reencoding cpu, rendering is some vid card so in that area it would help.
