post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
I would like to thank you all for your input. I am not very familiar with nvidia cards or CUDA but I just thought an AMD card would work best with an AMD processor & AM3 mobo. I could be mistaken though of course. Although what 2010rig is saying makes sense to me because Apple uses Intel/nvidia components in their machines. I was just hesitant to buy a AMD processor with an nvidia card. And yes I will be doing some gaming as well as alot of CS5 work, hopefully the 6870 paired with the 1090T will be fast enough although I understand where 2010rig is coming from.

and Thank you Dilyn!

Your rig will be fine with CS5 work. Granted, not as great as with a GTX 470, but it's good enough. If I was in your line of work, I would definitely reconsider my graphics card, but it's all up to you. CUDA cores definitely help out with CS5, there's no question. It's an excellent aid. But it isn't necessary.
As far as I know, there is no benefit when it comes to using an AMD cad with an AMD processor. Likewise, there's no reason why an nVidia card would not work well with an AMD CPU.

hmm damnit!

thats good to know, I guess I should have done more research!

I'll keep the 6870 though, as I hate the hassle of returning or exchanging items purchased online. I'll let you guys know how it runs performance wise and maybe Ill upgrade to a GTX480 in the near future instead of opting for another 6870 for CrossfireX!

+1 What he said.

Plus, an Nvidia card will work fine with your set up, and the card I'm recommending to you is likely the exact same price as you paid for your 6870. Quadros for example are grossly overpriced, where as the 470 has 448 CUDA cores and will give you excellent performance.

AMD processor + AMD card does not make CS5 run faster. AMD processor + Nvidia card will.

In the long run a 470 is the way to go for your budget, read this article I linked you to:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...-bit,2770.html

If you purchased your parts from Newegg, they will accept the return, just tell them you haven't put the computer together, and you got the wrong card, and wish to order a different one. If you don't want to be without a card, just wait 'till the 470 comes before sending in your return. ( I have done it )

There won't be any restocking fees either, yep, you'll pay $5 shipping or whatever, but it's worth it in the long run for your needs. I wouldn't have brought all this up otherwise.

I was in your shoes when I put my build together, I had a 1090T and a 5870 in my cart for about a week during my research, then I was fortunate enough that someone explained these key differences to me.

There's another mistake you will make.

Crossfire will not make any difference since all apps in CS5 only recognize a single card.

Plus, you don't need the 480 or 580 for that matter, where the 570 is cheaper, cooler, quieter, same performance as a 480.

Besides, the 470 is PLENTY, at $100 less than the 570, and should be the same price as your 6870.

I would suggest a 580 over a 480 though

And I agree with everything that 2010rig said about Newegg. If that is indeed where you bought your parts. They're usually very good about item returns.

who even said this ???

I am a graphic designer and work both on a PC and an iMac, and I just find myself into PCs more, though the iMac I work for is equipped with 4 GB DDR3 1066 RAM, and my PC is 4 GB DDR2 800 RAM, but I really find working on my PC noticeably faster than that iMac, though I work on Adobe InDesin CS3 (both on PC and iMAc) and Photoshop CS3 ( also the same version on both iMac and PC) but I really find it faster to work on my PC with Windows 7, and especially that I can overclock the processor on a PC, while I can do it on a Mac.

I like Macs, but I adooooore PCs.

this is it.
