    My GTX480 only occasionally works with Adobe Premiere Creative Cloud.  What should I replace it with?

      More often than not when I open an existing Adobe Premiere CC file the Mercury Playback Engine is not working.  I'm using an old GTX480 card.


      What would be a good choice to replace that card -- that will fit in the same type slot in my tower.


      This is a link to the GTX480 on Amazon -- it's what I purchased back in 2010.  It includes a photo of the hardware so you can see what kind of slot it needs to fit in.


      Thanks!  Trying to finish a project and am weary of the occasional non availabilty of the Mercury Playback Engine.


      BTW I have a Cooler Master power supply  1000watt


      I'm primarily editing for the web.  No blockbuster wide screen motion pictures For Your Oscar Consideration.


      Update:  Since I posted this question, I am looking at this:  EVGA GeForce GTX780


      Further update:  I looked at the specs of my motherboard.  It says it has PCIe 2.0 x16 slots  I assume that limits my options?  Or is there a 2.0 to 3.0 adapter I can use??  My current motherboard specs from Amazon
