I am buying a new computer from Origin and am wondering which video card to buy. Is the 1GB GDDR5 Nvidia GTX 550 Ti enough? Upgrading to the 560Ti (including its higher power requirement) would add $200 to my build-cost.
I will NEVER use my computer for gaming but I use Photoshop CS to edit RAW photos and those scanned at 600 dpi – producing very large files. I also use Imaginate software to make slideshows with the KenBurns Effect. I do not do any video editing.
Other system specs:
Intel i7 2600 3.4GHz
16 GB memory
128GB Crucial M4 SSD
IT Seagate Barracuda SATA-III, 6Gb/s, 7,200RPM, 64MB Cache HDD
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
