    So for GPU it's all about Memory Bandwidth...?

      that's what I've learned on these forums courtesy of some of the more knowledgeable members - and the PPBM benchmarks bear it out.

       

      I'm writing to ask for opinions on a GPU upgrade. My 470 pushes 133MB/s and the 580, which is now within my reach (budget-wise) runs 192MB/s. The question is, is that an appreciable difference? It seems like it is, and well worth  $349 but I'd like to know what you guys think.

       

      Most of my "work" is for fun - AfterFX, PremPro, C4D are my main apps - Painter, Photoshop, Illustrator are always open too. I run Production Premium CS5.5 on Win7.

       

      Thanks!
