Hello,
I am going to build a PC with Intel core i7-860, 8gb ram 1333MHz DDR3 and all of that stuff..

I will be working with Adobe After Effects CS5...

I have seen some Quadro GPUs but they are a little bit expensive...

Im looking for some up to 150 Dollars...
Any ideas?

thanks my friends

I would recommend getting even a decent gaming card; the GTX 470? It has CUDA, and it can still perform pretty good even though it's not in the league of the Quadros.

Agree, if you want CUDA then absolutely go with Nvidia cards, like GTX470 or GTX480.
And you are still can do some heavy gaming on your system. :D 

Make sure you have an enough power from PSU.

Hey Thanks a lot!
I've seen that you can use the Cuda acceleration with almost Nvidia Cards...

would that be an acceptable performance?

You wont get CUDA acceleration in AE, its just on the MPE in Premiere Pro.

HD5850 would work fine also as all the optimization are OpenGL, but the GTX460 is a good choice.

If by $1500 you mean just for GPUs or the whole system?? GTX 480s in SLI lol! But for that price you could definitely get a good workstation card, or a decent workstation card AND a good gaming card.
