Turning my HP ML350p Gen8 Server into an desktop PC for editing video.

Turning my HP ML350p Gen8 Server into an desktop PC for editing video.

Hello everyone,


I am new here and hope to find some answers to my question without annoying you.

I assume most of you guys are experts.


My question to you:


Can anybody recommend me a graphic card AND give me ideas (or even name people or businesses to help me) on turning my server into a fast machine for video editing?


Does it make sense anyway? What are the options? It happens to be that I got this machine and now I want to use it.

Is it financially viable to do so? Or do I pay more at the end assembling all the parts?


Any answer is highly appreciated.


Thanks a lot.
