Why buy a video editing card instead of a firewire card?

You can indeed use just a firewire port and Windows Movie Maker. Cheap and cheerful. But you'll soon see how very, very limited that is. 

You could buy a video editing software package separately for as little as 50. It'll probably offer you a little more than the built in Windows package. Some of these software packages come free with cards like the Radeon All In Wonder graphics cards more. However, do note that there are incompatibilities. Not all video editing software works on all firewire ports. And even if yours does work it can't be taken for granted that the card + software will work with your video camera. More on video editing software >>

The main reasons for using a video editing card rather than a firewire card are speed, convenience, features, free bundled software that is a lot more powerful than the Windows program, versatility, no compatibility problems, and not having to hang about while your clip is being rendered. OK, we've already said speed, but it can't be emphasised enough. A firewire card would take ages to apply the simplest of changes even to a small, low resolution video clip, irrespective of the speed of the PC. Video editing cards on the other hand do "real time" processing i.e. they have dedicated electronics built into the card to handle just this type of task rather than relying on the computer's processor (which is a very general purpose piece of hardware, and therefore slower on video editing) to do the work.

ALSO, a much overlooked factor is quality. When you move up from a standard firewire card to a video editing card you'll be impressed by the difference in the quality of your clips.
