Photoshop, Illustrator, Video Editing

Hey guys, I don't know much about the video cards for rendering in Photoshop, Illustrator and video editing... I hear the quattro cards and fireGL cards are what i'm looking for.. Just wondering how they will perform using these programs...I run a small business with graphic design and am just wondering if switching to a quattro or firegl card will boost my performence in these programs...

Thanks

  1. A sub-$100 card will work just as well as a quadro or FireGL in Photoshop, Illustrator, or video editing.

    Look for an X1300 or X1600, they have nice video viewing and even rendering features.

  5. If you're using Adobe Premier Pro CS5 then you'll want a nVidia card, with CUDA. 64 bit operating system and 64 bit software.

    In photoshop CUDA will only make noticable gains in certain plug-ins that take advantage of the hardware but, if you're using Premier Pro CS5 then you definetly want nVidia, they used a GTX 480 in the testing for the linked article.
