Could you please help? I don't play any games. But sometimes do a little bit of video editing with Adobe Premiere. Would it make a big difference with one of the NVIDIA cards? The rest of the time I do mostly webdesignw tih dreamweaver and photoshop. I do copy some DVDs and watch video streaming over the web. Would a graphic card help with any of these?
