I don't have a fraction of the knowledge that most of you have here and would appreciate your help choosing a graphics card. I am not a gamer. I have a new Dell machine coming which I use primarily for photo and video editing with the Adobe CS4 products and will upgrade to CS5 soon. I saw the following on a website (studio1productions)....... Adobe Premiere CS5 was release with the new Mercury Playback Engine (MPE) that can use a video card’s GPU to accelerate playback, effects and rendering. Adobe has only “certified” a few of the high end video cards from NVIDIA. When you install Premiere CS5 and it doesn‘t find one of the “certified“ video cards, the Mercury Playback Engine is set to run in “software mode”, using only the computer’s CPU and not the video card’s GPU. One of the cards getting high marks is the Nvidia GTX 460 and I'm really confused on which brand Asus, Sparkle, MSI, PNY, Gigabyte, etc, etc.... I do know that it needs to be the 1G GDDR5 version. The machine I ordered and waiting delivery for is a Dell XPS 9100, Intel i7-930, 9GB Tri channel DDR3 SDRAM, 525 Power supply, Windows 7 Pro. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you can give me.
