For a video editing work station I'm comtemplating the 460 to save $150 vs. the 570 card. I'll use Adobe CS6. I've heard there's not a lot of difference between the two. Any advice?

Grab a gtx 480 for really good performance with CUDA, they are super cheap these days.

460 will be fine providing it is in the supported list of cards.

I haven't seen it in the supported list of cards, but I'm guessing it would work. I'll look more at the 480, but I don't think there's a big difference in price to the 570 with the newer technology.

If you have a power supply that can handle it then go with the gtx 480. As someone mentioned earlier they are a good deal these days. The gtx 480 is very similar performance wise to the gtx 570, so I would go with a gtx 480, but know that it runs a bit hotter, and draws more power, but if thats fine with you then thats a good deal.

Hope this helps!

The 480's are a great deal nowadays, as other have stated, and if you have the power supply to back it up (at least a quality 650w PSU), then I would highly recommend the 480.

It's cheaper than the 570, and it'll perform pretty much the same.

However, I'm sure that a 460 will perform just as well for CUDA acceleration regardless.
