I am about ready to buy a new, custom PC. I need to finalize my video card selection. I am a advanced user of Photoshop CS6 and it now includes Mercury Graphics engine. NO games. I will probably dabble in video processing next year.
I am using an NEC PA301W monitor that needs display port support for 10-bit color (14 bit LUT) and supports 2560 x 1600 res.
I am debating between nVidia Quadro 4000 or the FirePro v5900. The builder is pushing the v5900, but I've always liked nVidia......
The rest of the system:
i7 39030K processor Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard 16 GB RAM 240 GB Intel 520 series SSD (may change to Crucial m4 if I can get builder to agree...)
