I would test first what your experience will be with CS5. Maybe then you will decide that upgrading to a new video card is not all that urgent and you can wait for the new Fermi cards to be certified. That would be my approach.

I was able to sell my 5850 for the exact same that I bought it for and picked up a GTX 480 to replace it, albeit for a good bit more.

from what I read in that thread IF someone is just editing video without filters ie multi-cam 2 camera switch. A CUDA supported card wouldnt really do them much good as long as they have a -7 processor thats really what counts right? They only need the CUDA card for effects?

Definitely the best approach..... Harm, I don't see any reference with CS5/After Effects that it utilizes CUDA. Is CUDA strictly for the benefit of Premiere?

The support for the GTX 480 is meant for Q3 so there is a little wait to fully use the card.

Marty, yes, the hardware acceleration of MPE is only for Premiere. Believe me, I would be the happiest person here if After Effects could utilize CUDA acceleration.

True, but I knew my 5850 wouldn't keep it's value until Q3 :)
