Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: December 23, 2012 9:52 PM in Graphics & Displays Share jakewat97 December 17, 2012 9:05:16 AM I am going to build a PC for my dad who is a graphic designer and was wondering what graphics card is best for the job, i know it is low usage work but would a Nvidia quadro card be good for it or is a GT 640 or something better to use? More about : graphic design card ak_annihilator December 17, 2012 9:17:57 AM personally i would go with the 680 as it is a good all around card and is very cheap.

Additionally, nVidia offers CUDA processing on certain cards. In editing, CUDA tends to focus primarily on color correction of images. OpenCL/GL acceleration tends to benefit specific functions by vendor. The best all-around OpenCL/GL card for GPU compute would be the FirePro V4900. I honestly don't know where MS is going with Direct Compute. Share sethest December 17, 2012 1:42:36 PM What kind of graphic design are we talking about? Photoshop and other 2D / 3D modelling for entertainment like 3Ds Max / 3D design like AutoCad Score 0 jakewat97 December 17, 2012 9:06:25 PM Mostly photoshop, the main thing needed is accurate colour rendering. Score 0 sethest December 18, 2012 7:53:54 AM I'm no expert in that, but I think the main concern should be the display itself rather than the gpu. One think to keep in mind is that the card should have appropriate connections Score 0 jakewat97 December 23, 2012 9:24:55 PM Best answer selected by Jakewat97. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
