I am just abotu to buy a new pc and wondering if an ATI Radeon™ HD 5450 1GB DDR3 will be more than enough for editing 5/6MB fotos using Nikon software and if either the ATI Radeon™ HD 5770 1 GB or Single 1.8GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 will be complete overkill. Please anyone, if you can help would be so very grateful.
A 5770 should be fine, you won't really need anything else so long as it's photo editing.
Thanks verymuch for your reply. Actually the Dell Inspiron 580 would be with a ATI Radeon™ HD 5450 1GB DDR3 graphics and if I got the Dell Studio XPS 8100 it would have either AATI Radeon™ HD 5770 DDR3 or an Single 1.8GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 for an extra 50€. I tend to always go overboard (given that I am not a techie I tend to think bigger, more expensive is best). Really appreciate your help. thanks, Jayne
The 5450 will be fine. With the money saved, get a bigger CPU.
Thanks so much for your reply. I really appreciate it. I think I will end up going for the 5450 as basic photo editing doesn't warrant such huge expense. Think I will end up with an i5 750 (2,66 GHz, 8 MB) Memoria DDR3 a doppio canale da 8.192 MB [4x2.048 MB]. thanks again for taking the time to reply. Jayne
