“For HD or Full HD video editing, a good budget graphics card with 2GB VRAM is enough.  for 4K video editing, you do need a decent mid-range to high-end graphics card having a minimum of 4GB Video Memory or VRAM.”

For budget gpu prefer gddr5 than old ggdr3 VRAM.  GT710 too old.

@redxps630​ Great thank you! I do a 1 minute video editing, surprisingly my PC lags, I thought 8GB RAM was enough, so I bought 2pcs 8GB RAM from Alibaba and it's on the way. Just thought I'd get a graphics card as well and see how much of a different in performance.

Thanks for all the details, but something was left out.  What size is your 3010?

If you have the mini tower:
  1. GTX 1050 Ti
  2. GTX 1650
If you have the DT or SFF:

Edited from PC Parts Bin:
Direct X 12 GPU's for modern rendering:
GT 1030 GDDR5
RX 550
RX 6400  (beats GT 1030)
