Best Video Card for Adobe Premiere 2.0 and Dual Monitors

Just picked up (2)Dell 24" 2405FPW 1920x1200 monitors. Can any savy souls provide input on a new video card to purchase that would COMPLIMENT tasks of Premiere Pro 2 while still providing good support for gaming. TV not needed, Vivo?, HD?, other options?

A Friend mentioned support/driver compatibility sometimes better with Nvidea vs. ATI for my application. The products he did mention off the cuff were an Nvidea 7900GT, Nvidea Quadro FX1400 and ATI X1800XT.

Thanks much,

ASUS P5GD2 3.4Ghz HT 2GB Ram

    Accepted Solution

    Premiere Pro seems to have better support for Nvidia cards. Premiere does not really use the features of the professional Quadro cards, but it does use the GPU to accelerate rendering etc, so get the best Nvidia gaming card you can afford.
