    Which components to upgrade to Maximize Performance for AE CS5.5?

    The Dark Zodiac

      Hello!

       

      I've had After Effects for quite sometime now, and I would like to know which computer components must be powerful to obtain maximum performance?

       

      I have a first-gen intel core i7 3.2 GHz with 8GB of RAM and Nvidia GT230 (OEM)

       

      I'm planning to upgrade to an Nvidia GTX 570 - i'm thinking that will improve preview and rendering performance.

       

      As i have searched a bit, AE does most of it's stuff by Memory (RAM).

       

      My main question is, investing on quite an expensive card, will it improve overall performance, especially in preview or pre-render?

       

      Thanks in advance!
