I was think about getting this card because it seems to be the cheapest card with CUDA :

I want to use it with Premiere - do you think it is a good deal? I know it is only 512 ram though...

Suggestions?

For occasional use it is ok if you are not doing any professional work that maintains deadlines. Look for something with more performance if it is for work and as for vram 512mb is ok.

I was looking at that card as well and I do remember reading complaints about heat and poor overclocking. So I would personally pass it up even for a crappy but still cheap GT430 but the GT240 is better. It is the type of vram and the clocks that count as well architecture. If you want a sure thing when it comes to cuda look for a cheap G92 that isn't LP and have crappy cooling. GT450 is about the next step up and provides a lot of bang for buck.

If you are going to use this with Adobe, you really want a GT240 WITH 1GB of DDR5 RAM... to see why, read the thorough explanation at: http://www.stud​io1productions.​com/Articles/Pr​emiereCS5.htm (It won't work w/512MB, and DDR5 is 45% faster)
