    Budget GPU 2014 €150-$200


      hello guys,


      I'm a media student at the university of amsterdam. I'm trying to find my way in the video editing world.

      For filming I use a Canon EOS 7D and I always used my fathers computer. But it's time for my own computer!

      Of course I know most of you will say I need a €2000 system but that's just not possible.


      Right I came up with this:

      amd fx-8350

      16gb corsair 1600mhz

      asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 motherboard

      cooler master k3-80

      cooler master b600 watt

      kingston hyper 3k ssd 128gb (already have some other hdd's)

      windows 8.1


      My question for you guys is: what is the best gpu for around €140?

      I went to my local store and we figured out that the gtx 750 ti would be a good choice.

      But then I got on the adobe site with recommended graphics card and this one isn't on the list..

      So to be honest now I'm at the point that I just don't know anymore.. Ha-ha..


      would mean the world to me if someone could give me some good advice.

      And once again €140/150/160 would be the max I can spend!! (About $200).


      thanks in advance!

          If your nVidia card has at least 1Gig of video ram, use the nVidia Hack http://forums.adobe.com/thread/629557 - which is a simple entry in a "supported cards" file


          I think Premiere Pro CC no longer requires the hack... if the card meets the requirements, it will use the hardware


          Do be aware that an AMD processor will not be as fast as an Intel, because the Intel CPU had firmware commands that are used by PPro and which are not in the AMD


          Many good articles at Tweakers Page

            Ok after your suggestion this is what I came up with:


            Cooler master k-380 (€44,99)

            Intel core i7 4790 (€259.00)

            Cooler master series B 600 watt (€59,00)

            Corsair Vengeance 8GB(1x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL10 (€79,99)

            MSI GTX 750 Ti 2GB DDR5 (€134,00)

            Kingston HyperX 3K - Solid state drive (€76,00)

            Gigabyte Z87-HD3 (€91.98)

            Cooler Master Blade Master 120mm (€12,50)

            DVD reader/burner (€19,95)

            Windows 8.1 (€59.00)




            the other rig with the amd fx 8350 cost me about €710.

            is it worth the extra money, or will the changes with the i7 be minimal?

              That looks much better for Adobe Premiere Pro editing.  I just hope that your other hard drives you have at least one empty SATA connected, 7200 RPM drive, two would be better.

                Well, right now i only have one extra HDD. But this is only a basic system.

                im planning on upgrading the ram memory, ssd's and HDD's. But i have to give it some time.
