Best For Editing: 670 ftw+ Vs 680 Classified

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so i'm in the middle of my build and i am currently steering away from my two 7950 plan. I really want a great editing oriented card with around this price range. My main question is if the extra money is worth it and if there is a big difference. A lot of editing i would be doing is adobe after effects (Video), Cinema 4d (3d work), and Photoshop(Photo rolleyes.gif ). Also I am going to be running three minimum 27in monitors. And if you choose one card or the other, which brand should I get? My specs are below!thumb.gif

Cpu: Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
Mobo: Rampage IV Extreme
Psu: Corsair AX1200w 80+ gold
Case: Corsair 650D
Ram: G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
More info in build log!

Coming from someone who built their rig around those three exact programs, they are mostly, if not all, CPU bound. There's a little bit of GPU acceleration that can be done, but for the most part it does not matter what card you use. IMO, just get the 670 FTW+. It doesn't seem worth it to spend the extra cash to get the 680. You could use that money to get some more RAM (Yes, I've used the whole 32GB before thumb.gif)

Rendering with After Effect can easily use more than 16GB of RAM, I suggest you add more. Cuda enabled GPUs help (i.e. Nvidia GTX/Quadro) but CPU matters more.

Thanks for the advice! What kind of temps are you getting? And btw your Phantom build is amazing. Great work

I actually upgraded to water cooling recently (yeah I really need to update my build log!), but for temps I mostly idle around 30s on my CPU and GPU and at full load I'm in mid 60s on the CPU and mid 40s to low 50s on the GPU. I think I had a bad mount on my CPU, so I'll probably re-do it. Oh and my ambient is usually 25-27c.
