Which Quadro FX for Me?
on Jan 1, 2008 at 4:05:11 am

I plan to use Adobe CS3. I am making mostly family HD movies with a modest amount of edits, transitions and effects. I am not sure what to prioritize in the chart at URL: in order to make the best price / performance decision. With my limited technical knowledge, I narrowed down to below. Any help making the final decision would be much appreciated. Is option 2 worth 2x the money? If so, then I could buy used on ebay. What features should I prioritize for CS3? (i.e. memory size, bandwidth, Open GL version, Direct X version, etc.??)

Option 1:
PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX 560/570 ~$200

Option 2:
PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500/1700 ~$400

For basic Adobe editing the cheaper card will get the job done. If you plan on getting into compositing and nore complex graphics and effects then the 1500/1700 are a better long term investment.
