    Buying Premiere Pro CS5, but have ATI 5870

    mrcultureshock

      Hello,

       

      I'm planning to get Adobe Production Premium bundle using a faculty discount soon so I can update my Photoshop and get Premiere Pro at the same time.  I plan to take HD movies using my DSLR and I want to learn Premiere Pro. However, my GPU is an ATI 5870 and it's not one of the supported graphic cards.  Unfortunately, I just built my current PC and don't plan to upgrade its hardware now.  What sort of performance penalty will I get using a 5870?  Is it even recommended that I use Premiere Pro with an ATI card?

       

      Here are the specs for my PC:

       

      Intel Core i7 960

      Asus Rampage II Extreme

      ATI 5870 1GB

      6GB of RAM

      3 HDs (more can be added for PPro)

       

      Thanks in advance!
