    Which GPU is right for me?


      I'm making short videos for the web using Premiere Elements 9 on a 32-bit Windows OS with 4 GB RAM. The software runs fine, but I want to see what I can do to optimize my station's graphic computing. I am in the market to buy a GPU or anything that will speed up the rendering process. I am not as experience with this type of hardware and would like some feedback on some afforable graphics card that I can have installed easily and will keep the editing going smoothly without waiting 10 minutes for it to render. Which GPU is right for my purposes? Thanks!

          Welcome to the forum.


          Unfortunately, you have posted to the Tips & Tricks sub-forum, which is a repository for, well tips & tricks.


          Our MOD, Steve Grisetti will move this out to the main forum, where you will get a lot more views, and comments.


          In the meantime, take a look at the Hardware Forum, and read all the posts by Harm Millaard. This THREAD is a great starting point.


          PrE does not fully utilize the newer high-powered GPU's, like PrPro CS5 does, so you will likely not get that much improvement with Rendering, just with the GPU. A new CPU and great, optimized I/O sub-system (your HDD's, their controller type and how you have them allocated).


          Good luck,
