    Does anyone know where I could get either a VPS or dedicated server that includes a good graphics card such as the HD 5770 or better for video editing?

    You wouldn't be able to render properly as RDP would carry too much lag and you'd end up skipping frames and such.

    Teach me something.
    What use is having a high end graphics card on a VPS or Dedi
    when you can only view it from your local one?

    My bad, I just thought about it.

    So I'd be better off just getting a faster Internet connection? I think I can get 5Mb/s up internet from switching to cable. Currently I have 256Kb/s up with dsl,and it takes so long to upload a video that I edit.

    Even on a gigabit lan Premiere over RDP lags and jumps. I'd definitely suggest doing it at home and uploading it. Faster internet is a better monthly expense than dealing with the headaches you'll have trying to edit remotely.

    That is what I was thinking.
    But the server converts the video and displays it.
    Your local machine receives a relay from your server and displays that.
    Your local machine will be the best resolution you can see but is it the
    true image of the video?

    You will not be able to view the graphics from the RDP even if you have a good graphics card installed. As the video/display will be "compressed" to your local pc.
    So the quality/speed will be lost again.

    If you want to render, than go for a high CPU VPS or Dedi.
    Otherwise, you better do it locally.

    Pay for better internet connection and just edit your video locally and upload.
