At present I have a Dell XPS 8300 with an ATI 5450 card installed, however it appears this card has been causing my system to suddenly freeze up(long story,but i believe its confirmed).I don't game at all on my system,the only labour intensive thing i do is photo editing,just photos(CS5 & Lightroom).Am not really knowledgeable about GPU's am looking for a Nvidia equivalent to the 5450 or better yet your suggestion on what I should be looking at getting.
Thank you in advance
GT220 or GT240 depending on how much you want to spend. If your copy of PS is new enough you might want to consider getting a bigger GPU as you can use it to apply the filters instead of your CPU. Its a lot faster on the GPU then the CPU. You'll need something like the GTS250/450 however, so you might need a PSU upgrade as well.
At presnt I have a Dell XPS 8300 as I stated;
Intel Core i 7-2600 processor(8MB Cache, 3.4GHz)
8 GB DDR3 SDRAM
320 GB SATA II Hard Drive (7200RPM)
1.5 TB SATA II Hard Drive (7200RPM)
(2) 16X DVD +/- RW Drive
According to Dell's site the power supply is 460 W,
I hope that helps
