At this point in time, I would still be buying nVidia.
Which of these would you pick. Is there a big different in performance?
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 OC HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 2GB
KFA2 GeForce GTX 660 Ti EX OC HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 3GB
Asus GTX660 Ti 3GB PCI-E OC GTX660 TI-DC2OC-3GD5
Gainward GeForce GTX 760 HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 2GB
I have Intel i7-920 with 12GB DDR3 ram. 2X WD Black 2TB in Raid0 and 2X WD Red 3TB in Raid0
Windows 7 64 bit on a SSD 120GB. Mainboard gigabyte ex58-ud5.
I use Canon 5DmkIII 1080P and Gopro Hero 3+ Black Edition. Will output at best quality. (H264 1080P)
I would pick the GTX 760 2GB given the 4 options that you list here.
Based on your current workflow and current system, you are likely most constrained by your cpu. You can verify my theory here by monitoring task manager / performance tab and watching how hard your cpu is working during various tasks.
You posted the same question in a different company's forum. As former Adobe Forums user Harm Millaard stated, your CPU and RAM are the limiting factors. If you are using footage from just the Canon 5DMkIII, the GTX 660 2GB would be more than sufficient. However, you stated that you're going to be using a GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition at HD rez. Unfortunately, the codec that's used in the GoPro Hero cameras is among the toughest for even an extremely fast CPU to handle. As Harm stated in that thread in that forum, try to either find a used hexa-core LGA 1366 i7 for a discount price and upgrade your system's RAM to 24GB, or buy a whole new CPU, mothernoard and 32GB or more RAM.
Thanks. I will go for a GTX 760 card. But there are so many of them.
Who should I choose? Any good reviews of some card? I like to have little noise as possible. This iPC s in the living room.
Hi. I'm in same boat. What did you decide on and how is it working for you?
The 760GTX models are relatively the same except for warranty and support. I would look at Asus, EVGA, or Zotac right now.
