Video guys recommends the 560ti graphics card for Premiere Pro CS6. A lot of people are saying good things about the 480. Any thought on the better pick of the two? Thanks.

Well I don't know too much about the program you want to use but I would think that you would be better served by the 480 as the 560Ti is more of a gaming chip compared to the 480 which I believe has superior compute abilities.
The 480 does use more power though so be sure you can power it.

I have both and I can tell you the 480 is way better for games. I purchased the 560ti first, then saw on newegg the 480 for about $210.

After installing I ran the ff14 benchmark test and the scores were something like the 560ti ~4200 and the 480 was ~ 7000.

The 480 has a better memory bandwidth which probably helped. My gut tells me that it would be better for 480. As Mactronix says, make sure you have the power.

Just to clarify.
The 560Ti is made to play games its a different chip and as such dosent have the same compute capabilities as the more general purpose 480.
I didn't mean to suggest that the 560Ti is a better gaming GPU than a 480.

Hello, I won't be using this card for gaming. I'm a video editor and will be using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for creating video. 480 vs. 560ti. The Evga gtx 570 is only $50 more, but i'm not sure I'd be getting more bang for the buck. ??

The 480 wins on price/performance
The 560 Ti wins on power consumption and lower heat. The 560 Ti 448 cores get closer to the performanc of a GTX 480...

Where is Recon-UK?

he's gone for good, couldn't keep his mouth shut or disconnect his fingers from typing.

and depending on the model of Ti's it can almost match the 480.
example:
MSi N560GTX-Ti HAWK TFIII

There is a TF III?

Now who is gonna post videos on how great the GTX 480 is at both BF3 and frying eggs? Well maybe not the cooking part... but you get the idea...

For real. As soon as I saw gtx 480 in the title, I figured Recon would consist of at least half of the posts on this thread. haha

Gaming wise yes but can it keep up on the compute side of things ?

Mactronix :hello: 

only computing I do is Folding and the GTX 560 (non Ti) is the price performance ratio king..

CS6 can use OpenGL - AMD cards will work well with this program. HD7850/70 or 7950/70 if you can spare the extra cash.
