The FAT one, 560.
I agree with Harm. The Quadro 2000 is (as far as Premiere Pro is concerned) little more than an underclocked GeForce GTS 450 - and the Quadro 2000 (for that nearly $400 price) still has only 1GB of VRAM. As such, (again as far as Premiere is concerned) the Quadro 2000 costs more than quadruple the cost of the GTS 450 that it's based on. However, it is an okay choice if you are planning to run 3D design/modeling programs that either take advantage of the Quadro's capabilities (which go largely unused/wasted in Premiere Pro) or absolutely require a Quadro just to even run well (if at all).
Are you saying the
nVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 will work about as well as the Quadro 2000 ?? If so then will the
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P3-1469-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR for the extra 110 be quite a bit better still with the 2 Gig of ram??
Wahts a cheapie similar to the Quadro 4000??
Yes, Patrick, the GTS 450 will perform a tad faster than a Quadro 2000 in CS5.5 due to the Quadro 2000's lower clock speed.
As for a GeForce equivalent to a Quadro 4000 (256 cores), there is no direct substitute. The closest GeForce GPU to the Quadro 4000 (hardware-performance-wise) would be the GTX 460 SE (288 cores).
Well then what are your thoughts on the
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P3-1469-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
compared to the gtx 460 se

the 560 is 2gig and just under 250
the 450 is 1 gig is just under 200
Again the 560. Faster, cooler, quieter and more memory.
