    New GPU, so many choices...

    Jack Banatoni Community Member

      Getting ready to build a new system (i7-2600k, 16GB memory, ASUS P8Z68-V Pro motherboard, 750W PSU).  Thanks to some sales, I have a little more room in the budget for a GPU.  I edit primarily DSLR footage.  Which of the following is recommended?

       

      EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card    

      • $249.99

       

      ZOTAC AMP! ZT-50302-10M GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card    

      • $229.99

       

      EVGA 02G-P3-1568-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card    

           $279.99

       

      EVGA 012-P3-2066-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 448 Cores FTW 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card    

      • $289.99

       

      Ever use Zotac?  How much difference does "superclocked" make?  Is it better to get a 560 Ti with 2GB memory over the 560 Ti with 448 cores?  My original choice was the first card on the list, but it had a price hike so I'm considering other options.  My ideal price is closer to the $200 mark than $300.

       

      My concern with the 560 Ti with 448 cores is that no one really has it yet to confirm it works with the GPU hack in CS5.  It's also an extremely limited run, which has me concerned about future support and potential SLI use (assuming future versions of Premiere can make use of it).

       

      Thanks,
