Hi, I am currently using PPCS4 and just upgraded to PPCS6. On one system I'm running a GTX 285 and on the other Quadro 2000. Can you tell me which new graphics card in each catagory will be able to run both CS6 and CS4 as I have many programs still setup in CS4? I tried tech sipport with no answer from them. I looked over GTX 570 or 580 for one system and Quadro 4000 for the other but I still have reservations if there will be a problem or not with CS4. Can you help me. I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, both systems are running Intel core i7's, one with 24gb ram and the other with 16gb ram. Thanks

    I had the same concerns for upgrading from PPCS5 to CS6 because my video card isn't even listed on the specifications list.  I downloaded the trial for CS6 and was surprised it worked.  The only thing is I had to update the trial software because I had issues prior to that.  Before the update, the play button wouldn't work and it wasn't reading my fonts correctly.  I am hoping to upgrade soon when they get the store fixed.


    I would do the trial before sinking money into a new graphics card.  It might help, but may not be necessary.  Sorry I can't help you with which is the right graphics card.

    CS4 does not really use any advanced features of any card... so a relatively inexpensive AMD/ATI card will do anything a more expensive card will do... for CS4


    Starting with CS5 (a complete rewrite of the source code, to go from 32bit to 64bit, plus a LOT of other changes) an nVidia card helps with some actions



    For a list of supported nVidia CUDA cards go to the CUDA help page -


    For many others, with at least 1Gig of video ram, use the nVidia Hack - which is a simple entry in a "supported cards" file


    Which nVidia card you buy will be a combination of 2 factors... how much $$ you want to spend for a given speed level (number of Cuda cores) and the size of your power supply to drive the card


    For a PARTIAL comparison of nVidia cards
