I would double the figure and add some change to it: 2 x 2400 + change = 4870.
:) agreed. Especially since we know Nvidia does nothing special for CS4 despite the misleading stuff on the website.

Can you expand on that? I too am looking in the near future to upgrade my system as it is too slow to edit 1920x1080 HD. I primarily work with 3D Studio MAX and edit my scenes in PPro. Most people in the 3D world perfer NVidia because of the Open GL Structure. Is Radeon Open GL? I'm stuck between a rock and a wet spot..
YES. Of course it's open GL......silly :)
Nvidia has a plug-in/driver make just for 3D STUDIO MAX. If your picking a card for 3d modeling thats a whole different ballpark.
I thought we were talking about a video card for Premiere. My 2nd editing 'puter has an Nvidia 8600 and it edits 1080 realtime. The GPU only accelerates a few effects in Premiere anyway. The GPU doesn't speed up rendering unless it's a specialized card like Matrox or that 2000 dollar Nvidia CS4 card that comes with a CUDA plug-in to render h264.
Well the initial thread started out talking about a vid card for premiere. I'm looking for a dual purpose card. 3D MAX ..and.. Premiere. I can't afford to have a workstation dedicated to premiere.
Sorry I didn't notice you weren't the person who started the thread.
Then check the Nvidia page. I can't remember if the 3dmax accelarator was for regular Nvidia or quatro's. Check it out then give us your price range, I've never used a quatro but I'm someone here will have a good suggestion if that's the case.
