    Unfortunately, the graphics card you have installed is below the minimum requirements for HitFilm, and therefore performance is likely to be less than ideal.

    Isnt the minimum an NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT?

    Yes, with at least 512 MB onboard RAM. Unfortunately, the 600-class card of the 8000-series is lower in performance than the 900-class card of the 7000 series. The last three numbers in the designation 8600 indicate the performance, within the series indicated by the first number.
    The system used to number and name graphics cards isn't nearly as clear-cut and straightforward as we'd like, and unfortunately a bigger number doesn't translate to better performance.

    So besides the fact that i cant see the preview of the video what are the other limitations i will get?

    Since the card isn't supported, we don't really know. The fact that the software runs at all is a bit of an anomaly.

    Yes, its a situation where it varies form one card to the next. Some cards are completely incompatible, and won't run the software at all. Others can handle many of the functions, but certain things required by HitFilm will be beyond their capabilities. Its not that the card isn't even close, but it is below the minimum.
