    Appropriate graphics card for my computer

    JayNewWeb Level 1

      I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card to run Premiere Pro CC 2015.

       

      I have an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 tower: HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Series Business Desktop (QuickSpecs/c04123137.pdf)

       

      i7-4770 at 3.40 GHz

      SSD (SATA) for OS/apps/cache

      HDD for data

       

      I had put a GT 360 in it but then learned it doesn't have true Kepler and only runs DDR3 when I really should have GDDR5.

       

      It won't be my main video editing machine (I'll have a workstation for that) but it will be my secondary video editing machine that I'll use at home. I'm doing pretty lightweight video production -- marketing videos for my own company only -- but man does it cost me to wait for things to process.

       

      I know the recommendations are to stay with GTX and not go to Quadro for cases like mine. Now to pick the right GTX model that's good enough and not overkill (and that the PSU in my machine can hopefully handle).

       

      Advice would be greatly appreciated, please.

       

      Thanks!
