What software applications are you using? Also, what is your budget?

Since that is the case, you probably want to go with a Nvidia based solution vice an ATI/AMD solution. CS5 can take advantage of CUDA and can off-load some processing to the GPU. This is especially helpful when rendering large files. ATI/AMD Stream support is forthcoming, but not available at this time.

This being the case, the Quadro is your best bet. Good luck!

I know for about $70US, you can purchase Pantone Huey Pro that provides professional results (gets pretty good reviews).

If you are a serious photogragher/cinematographer you need good tools. To me (and my film student daughter) this is worth investing a few bucks for.

The pleasure is all mine. Should you have any other questions, come on back to Tom's. This is a great community and it is hard to get better (especially free) advice anywhere on the 'Net. Have fun!
