Trying to decide how much benefit in performance there would be in upgrading the ATI FireGL V7300 Graphics card on one of my older computers running PPro CS5, or would the money be better spent towards a new system altogether?
* Intel Xeon CPU 5160 @3.00 GHz (2 processors)
* 16.0 GB RAM
* Win 7 64 bit
>>Get a new system would be my suggestion.
Thanks, Harm for confirming my suspicions. As this is a secondary machine, I'll probably just continue to use it sparingly for awhile, then retire it when I step up the main one.
For a new system you would still want a good nVidia card, say GTX 560+. No harm in investing in that now since it will improve performance significantly over the ATI Fire and you can port it to the new machine in time.
