    Video Card question


      Hello! I'm an IT for my company and we're looking to buy new machines for our design team. I believe the programs in the suite we use the most are:


      InDesign, Photoshop, After Effects, and Illustrator.


      The machines we've been looking at are here.

      My question is: which machine will give me the best performance out of these machines for the programs that they use?


      Also, I've seen that After Effects has a certain list of Video Cards that are supported for Ray-Traced 3d Rendering. Do you NEED those listed video cards? Or is it usable without the listed video cards?
