The gaming cards are not a problem with Adobe, you used to have to trick them with a line of code but that does not seem to be an issue anymore.

I agree that not everyone can afford a CC subscription but $50 monthly for the full package or $20 for one single piece of software would save so much time it might be worth reevaluating for hobbyists, thats cheaper than my cellphone. Premiere single licence would also include media encoder i think AE might as well.

I dont think you can licence Media encoder on its own, they should just make that one available for sale or even offer it for free IMO.

I already decided that if I wanted to upgrade from Movie Studio I'd get Premiere, not Vegas, even though it would mean learning a new interface. I've heard nothing but good things about Premiere.

I played a bit with Blender's video editing to help my stepdaughter put together a video of her reciting a passage from Hamlet, and goddamn was it fun.  Once I watched a starter video to understand the basics, it was really intuitive and FUN!!!

There are always people complaining about AMD products but found this which is interesting
http://www.corsair.com/en-us/blog/2014/november/fx-8350_power_to_performance

Seems to do game in the same ballpark as Intel machines.
The comment that a person put about not being able to tell 60 fps from 65 fps is a good one as well.

The open source drivers and Vulcan support may be what puts AMD on top for a large number of Linux users, but they (we) only make up a small percentage of the ever  shrinking desktop market anyways, so...

EDIT -

Clarification.  I'm talking about GPUs here.  It's important to be clear what you mean with AMD.
