Which Video Card is perfect for my needs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new Rig while all of these sales are going on. While money isn't an issue, I am looking for the right card to handle my uses with ease but I don't want to waste a bunch of money on a high-end card and not need it.

Uses will be:

Video Editing - Adobe After Effects CS5 mostly but maybe a few others
Photo Editing - Adobe Photoshop CS5
Gaming - Diablo 3 is the ONLY game I will be playing. I play everything else on Console.

I've been looking at the 560 Ti, 570, and even the 580 but I'm honestly not sure how much power I need for Video/Photo Editing or to run Diablo 3 at MAX SETTINGS with relative ease.

Which model and brand would you guys recommend and please back it up with an explanation so I know it's what I'm looking for.

Thanks for the help!

Well the 580 is way more than you would need IMHO I would say the 570 because its just a really nice card and will last you quite awhile and the 560 Ti is also a good choice but i feel a bit biased to the 570 tongue.gif I am not sure how well the 560 does in photoshop but the 570 would be more sufficient

Thanks for the input.

Anyone else have any advice to offer?

I'm planning on buying one used and since SLI won't work for editing programs, I am looking for the cheapest card that will Max Diablo 3 and run Adobe Editing programs with ease.

560 Ti will be ~ $175-$200
570 will be ~ $275-$300
580 will be ~ $400

I'm assuming that the 580 is too much for my needs so we can rule it out.

When it comes to the other two, though, I'm stuck. The 560's seem like excellent cards for the price but I don't know enough about them to judge if a single one is powerful enough. Do you guys think it can handle it or is a 570 for $100 more the best choice?

Thanks for the help!
