    Will this GPU work With Premiere Pro CS5.5?

      Hey guys,


      I'm in the final stages of upgrading my video rig. But just when I was finally at ease, I realized I didn't account for the GPU being compatible with Adobe Premiere Cs5.5. It would be a major headache if it isn't.


      Rig Specs.


      GPU: Radeon R9 290x

      CPU: i7 5820K @ 3.3 GHz 6 core

      RAM: 16GB DDR4 (will ddr4 have any conflicts?)

      C hard Drive: 500 GB SSD Samsung Evo

      Windows 7 64 Bit

      Additional Hard drives sum up to 7 TBs. All 7400 RPM


      My old rig is currently


      Intel Core i7 960 @ 3.20GHz 4 core

      64 bit OS

      12GB Ram

      GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series

      Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500G


      1.Would the Radeon R9 290x cause any problems for cs5.5 or would it be underutilized?

      2. And I know this might be a bit of a stretch since it is fairly new but could ddr4 have any negative implications on cs5.5 as well?

      3. I can upgrade to 6 if necessary. But upgrading CC is out of the question since without a perpetual license, we can't really afford those monthly prices long term. Worst comes to worse, which I really would like to avoid since I love premiere is that I'd have to switch to Sony Vegas since they have perpetual licences available. Any other recommendations at all would immensely be appreciated.
