Need help with Adobe Premiere/Photoshop build (very tight budget)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Helping a friend build a PC using mostly used parts for an Adobe Premiere/Photoshop PC. He is on a very tight budget so please no "just buy a titan".

We get pretty sweet employee pricing on used (off-lease) computers from a local school district...

Sandy Bridge i5 2500 3.7GHz (probably can't afford a bump to an i7)
Intel DQ67SW motherboard
4GB RAM (plan on upgrading to at least 8GB)
Single 500GB hard drive (plan on adding at least a 120GB SSD)
Windows 7 Pro
Junk Power Supply (plan on upgrading)

I don't really dabble in the whole adobe creation suite whatsoever so I have a hard time recommending graphics cards to him.

General knowledge tells me that you should go NVidia for the cuda technology but maybe things have changed.

According to this System Req page, there are way more AMD cards supported than Team Green. I also hear there are hacks that you can do if you don't have a card on the supported list. I was going to sell him a spare GT640 I have lying around but it's not on the list.

Please don't respond telling me this "budget minded" machine will suck at adobe. He is currently rendering on a i3 laptop with a single 5400RPM hard drive and a very low end AMD GPU. This machine will scream compared to what he's using.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Maybe I should have put this in "Graphics Cards - General" since I'm technically looking for a GPU suggestion. Mod can you move?

Sorry should have included that tongue.gif For the GPU I think $100 will be a hard limit. Up for buying used or new. The more I read the more it looks like AMD is the way to go with Premiere Pro CC if you're on a budget since it fully supports OpenCL. If you want cheap with Nvidia you have to go back to Fermi cards (yuck).

Of course the marketplace is bone dry on 7xxx series AMD cards. I think 7870 will be the best we can get for the $.

Make sure you read this for this 7970...

The card works fine, however one or both of the fans are slow on the card aren't working properly and the card will get hot if an external fan is not on it.

Yeah I saw that thumb.gif

Turns out he is even more strapped for cash than once thought. Will need to scrape the forums for a 7770 or similar for less than $50. He plans on using the machine with just the Intel HD 2000 iGPU which according to Intel doesn't even support OpenCL.



Will Adobe suffer with no openCL or Cuda GPU?
