  • need advice on GPU

    hi there,

    I'm planning on working with Edius 5.12. For this I want to upgrade my graphics card. I am looking for a single slot card with 1Gig of (preferably DDR3) memory.

    It would be great if the card is both quiet and with relatively low power consumption. I don't play games, i just want great effects performance in Edius.

    Any suggestions?
    thanks a lot

    Check put NVidia cards from say GTX260 up to the GTX295, you can pick them up pretty cheap now, check out EBay.... or wait a little while for the new 300 series NVidia cards, due soon.

      I have a slightly different problem. 99% of the graphic cards these days all occupy the physical space required by 2 slots. I can't release the spare slot because my PC slots are all fully occupied. Any good graphic cards you know that only occupy one physical slot?

      Just checked up Nvidia website - the new 310 card will fit this bill (if it really occupies only 1 slot width). Hoping ...

        That is precisely my problem too. i would like a graphics card for just one slot. It seems that ATI has some but I don't know how they perform with Edius 5.12

        Apparently most Edius users have NVidea cards, is that because of compatibility issues with ATI?

          As far as I know there are no Edius compatibility problems with ATI cards, as many of us here are system builders we have come around issues for me with the drivers, hardware I have no real issues so far.
          I think similar goes for the CPU, once one is bitten before you tend to be twice shy :)
          No ill feelings towards AMD but not for me .......

          P.s. I am not brand concious (enough) to stick with A while B is better performing at the time of purchase, same goes for software.
          I have no problems to switch camp for both, at the time of upgrade or new build, cost of course is always a small factor :)

            My ATI 4850 card works great. Edius will work just fine with either ATI or NVidea. I don't think anyone has ever reported compatibility issues with ATI cards.
