Graphic card


Now i have ATI HD3650 (expiriencing errors in Premiere CS4 when using MBL - rendering and exporting fails and application closes), but want to get better graphic card that will work with Adobe CS4, and support Magic Bullet Looks...
On their site i found that nVidia cards are better than ATI for MBL...
I don`t want to go very expensive (like Quadro cards), so i was thinking of buying XFX GeForce GTX 260 graphic card...
I would like to hear some recomendations and advices from you...

Thanks in advance

I have you tried updating the drivers for the ATI card?

nVidia marketing is much better than ATI, that is correct. Both are good and both have their weaknesses with certain applications. Recently nVidia has had some problems with Adobe.

I wonder if upgrading from a HD3650 will result in any noticeable improvement. If you want to make the step I personally would go for the HD58x0 or possibly the HD4890.
