I know its been asked multiple times on these forums but I am novice and really finding it tough to decide what could work best for me.
My current system spec is as below:
2.4 GHz Quad Core Processor (Intel Q6600)
8 GB DDRII RAM
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4850 Graphics
500GB 7200 RPM HDD
LG Super Multi Blue DVD RW, HD DVD, Blu Ray Drive
Power Supply - CoolerMaster 600W Silent Pro
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L -
Monitor - 32" LG LCD 1080p
Am a photographer and i use this machine extensively for processing my images. Many a times i have noticed that while editing images it gets stuck, takes longer than normal to convert the raw files, in full screen the image looks pixalated. Also, while playing blu-ray quality movie files it lags, have to restart always.
Someone told me that this could be an issue with my graphics card and also as i am using a 5 quid adapter to convert he DVI to HDMI for tv. Is this the real problem?
What could be the best graphics card available to run on my setup above? Please suggest.
