    Which Card for Premiere Pro

    jjx Level 1

      Im stuck with a Mac pro 2,1 so in order to get into the cuda game I'd have to buy a

      Mac Pro Dual Quad Core 2.26 Nehalem ....right?

       

      Im assuming its just not worth getting into the lastest mac drama plus  hoping to save a bit of cash by buying refurb mac + the card.

       

      anyway, the other question is, if I do...which card would work with PP CS5 and whihc would work better?

       

      GeForce GTX 285

       

      or

       

      PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX  4800 1.5GB

       

      (in a perfect world --- I would be working/doing this in Windows 7 bootcamp if at all possible)

          You need a Mac Pro 3.1 or better.  The latest crop of Mac towers are 5.1

          Card for the Mac would be a Quadro FX4800 or you could wait for a new Quadro Fermi based card for the MAc that should be out in a little while (don't know exactly, but before the end of the year.)
