Best sub $300 card for VIDEO/AUDIO Editing/Production work?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Looking to spend under $300, closer to $100 on a card to be used mainly for video editing and production work, no gaming really. Thanks for any tips!

A soft that can use CUDA can get a good boost if you use a good Nvidia graphics card, and I suppose you will be using something like Premiere Pro or something similar that is CUDA-enabled. Then within 100$ the choice should be a Gefore 550Ti, around 200$ the GTX 560 and just below 300$ the 560Ti or a 570 if you can fit one within the budget.
I don't know how much power you need, but if I were to recommend something the GTX 560 non-Ti would be on the top of the list for a good price/performance ratio.

Thanks for the reccomendations, will check them out...how do you feel about a GTX 460 (fermi)?

The GTX 560 Ti and the 460 have the same amount of CUDA cores, which is probably what you'll be using (depending on the program) but different clock speeds. The GTX 560's are higher, so it'd be better.

Uhm, the GTX460 has 336 cores, the 560Ti has 384 and more ROP's. It's closer to a 470 in speed than a 460 is.

Does anyone know anything about the noise between these cards? from 460 - 580?

If you plan on using normal gaming graphics cards to do your work, get the Twin Frozr II coolers. They are very near ref card price with very good and quiet cooling.

EDIT: Linus Sebastian released a new vid that is very close to this topic, take a look at it.

Yeah I took about 10 seconds to look it up.
