Hello again
My system build is not as fast as I want it to be
I've decided to purchase HP Z620 Workstation instead
So far it's been great

  1. I recommend the MSi GTX 780 Lightning: for both gaming and video editing. It isn't a workstation GPU, but it is enough for light-medium video editing.
  2. I was thinking about GTX 780 or AMD R9 290X but haven't decided it yet

    The AMD card seems to be more raw performance for the money, as usual, but Nvidia uses less power, runs much cooler, is more stable, and is much more efficient, just as usual :).

    For a somewhat accurate (because you cannot actually compare Nvidia and AMD GPU's) try this link:

    I personally recommend the GTX 780 as in real-world and benchmarks, it wins most of them. I personally own a custom liquid cooled GTX 780Ti and it allows photoshop on 3 22" IPS monitors.
