Some questions you have to ask yourself:
-For what reason do you need the pro version of 7 over the home version?
-Why do you need a GTX260?

Providing a link to the computer and giving us more details of your situation and uses would be very helpful.

Only The GTX285 and GTX470/80 is supported by CS5, if youre going to get a 260, get a HD5770 instead if you can.


I may have been misleading...I meant specifically Photoshop CS% (now) and video editing later on. Here's is a link to an article regarding the new PS CS5 features and GPU's

The HP options buying direct are
1GB ATI Radeon HD 5450 [DVI, HDMI, VGA adapter]
1GB ATI Radeon HD 4650 [DVI, HDMI, VGA]
1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 [DVI, HDMI, VGA]
1GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 [2 DVI,HDMI,DP,VGA adapter]
1GB ATI Radeon HD 4850 [2 DVI, HDMI and VGA adapters]
1.8GB NVIDIA Geforce GTX 260 [2 DVI, HDMI and VGA adapters]

Here is an article from adobe about tested GPU's. It makes you think EVERYTHING will work

Is your recommendation that the ATI HD 5770 will let me use the new features of CS5?
