Re: Which Graphics card?

There are a few questions that you need to answer before we can give you a definitive answer:

1) What is your workflow (source material, source resolution, output format, output resolution)?

2) Which hardware do you have in your PC?

If you have a six-year-old dual-core CPU in your main PC, then I cannot recommend any of the GPUs that you mentioned for that PC since they are all overkill for that old CPU. Same thing if you have an AMD CPU: They have incomplete or poorly implemented SSE 4.x support.

On the other hand, if your workflow involves greater-than-2K video resolution using complex codecs, only the GTX 760 (of those listed) comes anywhere close to handling such material comfortably. However, you will need a very powerful, new- or current-model CPU and motherboard in order to balance out the performance; otherwise, the CPU and/or system RAM might become the bottleneck.

Re: Which Graphics card?

Arve,

The i7-920 is an older quad core @ 2.67 GHz and you have only 12 GB RAM.

If you had only the 5DmkIII, the GTX 660 with 2 GB VRAM would be more than enough. But you also mention the GoPro Hero 3+. What resolution and framerate will you use? Are you on CS6 and do you use Cineform as an intermediate, or are you on the latest CC?

Do you have plans to upgrade your PC in the foreseeable future to an i7 hexa core and increasing memory to 24 GB on your current system or 32+ GB on a new system?

Re: Which Graphics card?

Hello.

I use Premiere CC, Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5.
Gopro Hero 3+ I have used 1080P Wide and 48 frame (PAL) and 720P 100 frame for slow motion.

Will a CUDA card give me some benefits? I now use a older card without openCL or Cuda.

Maybe next year I will get a new PC and then i would buy a new graphics card. Therefore, I think buying a cheaper which might give me a little better performance than my four years old Radeon 4850.
Or maybe use a little more Money and buy a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 Windforce 3X Rev2 HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 2GB and use it in a new PC next year? But maybe GTX 760 is not good enough for a i7 hexa core and 32GB memory?

I do most photos and the PC is fast in Lightroom 5.

Photoshop CC, Can it handle CUDA or only OPENCL? If only OPENCL I have to use a Radeon card than ??

Arve,

To reply to the question of OpenCL:

Photoshop CC supports OpenCL but not CUDA. However, OpenCL is not limited to AMD Radeon/Fire GPUs. NVIDIA GeForce/Quadro GPUs and some of Intel's newest IGPs also support OpenCL. It's that the Windows version of Premiere CC has disabled OpenCL GPU acceleration support in favor of CUDA with an NVIDIA GPU installed in your PC.
