HD6570 is the more powerful card there, neither card is worth a price premium over 1GB models since you run into GPU limit before ram limit.

@ OP
Link the cards you're talking about as there's no 2 Gb of HD 6570 or 3Gb of GT 520, and if there's it's totally useless.

For what you listed, any Radeon HD card will do your work just fine, and the HD 6570 is a good GPU.

Until you become a professional in your work, then i would recommend you one of the ATI FirePro or nVidia Quadro GPUs, they work like a charm with 3D applications and programs but they are pretty much expensive.

In my opinion I'd agree with ilysaml. HD 6570 would probably work decently 3d applications.

And ilysaml, how did you create that CPU-Z sig in you signature?

@dwarkesh
You can't decide what you want through youtube videos, it might be coming from idiot people don't know anything about Hardware.

Anyway to shorten, you're so fine with the HD 6570/6770/5670 or anything even below as long as you're using it for applications only.

Download the latest CPU-Z version and follow the validation instructions, then copy/paste the forum code given by them in the signature square

aha, they use system shared memory...
this one is better than the 2 you linked at the same price, GDDR5 memory is faster than GDDR3 and has 128-bit memory interface

Because they mention only the top Nvidia Quadro and ATI FirePro series, these cards designed specially for such work. Any mid range of these cards equals a top high end GPU for gaming and entertainment use.

So what is your budget limit ?
Anyway you can use a Quadro FX 1500 (recommended and qualified by mudbox)

If you want better than that, you'll need to spend more ($300 and above) but as long as you still a beginner, this will get your job done.

Also, check the drivers support first for your OS, most of it don't support Win 7 32/64
