    Lightroom + Color Efex Pro (Nik Software)

      Dear Forum,

       

      I would like to do the conversion to B&W in Color Efex. However, using the on-board GPU the image rendering is extremely slow. On the Nik Software page (by Google now), they say that the graphic accelerator is off unless I have a compatible graphics card. I'm not an expert in GPUs, so I would like to ask for a recommendation: which one to choose? I suspect that it doesn't matter much and buying something for $50 will do the job, but I wouldn't like to slow down the Lr with an inappropriate choice. I'm on Lr 3.4 and till now the on-board GPU was enough.

       

      Looking forward to your replies. Thanks in advance

       

      Cheers

       

      Luke
