    ASRock P55M Pro motherboard


      Can someone recommend the best Nvidia card to take advantage of Mercury and drive an HDMI monitor for Preimere Pro in CS5?

          First off, which CPU do you have on that motherboard? If you have something that's very low end, such as a Pentium G6950, you're pretty much performance-limited: One such system on the PPBM5 list attained a result of more than 1800 seconds (and that's with an Nvidia CUDA card that was not configured with the MPE hack) - more than 35 times slower (RPI-wise) than a fast i7 system. That's because the G6950 is a dual-core CPU with no HyperThreading, and is thus limited to only two threads. But if it's an i7-8xx CPU, you might be able to get away with upgrading to a GTX 550 Ti or GTX 560. If it's an i5-750 or 760, IMHO it would be somewhat of a waste of money going for anything higher than a GT 545.

            I have a 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7-860 8MB Cache Quad-Core The card I am going to replace is a 1GB ATI Radeon HD5770-GDDR5 PCI-E Dual DVI. How should I address the aditional HDMI monitor to view the video being edited also?
