      Looking for recommendations to improve performance on a Premier CS 5.5 install.  I still get the red bar even on something like a simple transition.  I bought the GTX 460 video card with the cuda hack, but was not impressed with the performance.  I'm wondering if I should upgrade it to a 570 to get the red render bar to display green?  Or should I save up for a Matrox MXO2 Mini or the blackmagic design?  Its for wedding work, so I feel the color calibration might go to waste (I've got a spyder calibrator for photography and an IPS panel), and I render over night, so don't really need the real time rendering capabilities.  If that is the route I need to go to get better performance in premier, what monitor do you guys recommend (only currently have dvi monitors)?  Or should I instead spend that money on improving my system (below)?

      Thanks for the help,

      Greg
