Graphics/Video Card Advice Needed
by Matt Frame on Dec 7, 2016 at 4:33:46 am
Hi, I am running an HP desktop system with eight (8) CPU's (running at 2.83GHz) , 32GB of Ram, and a 500GB SSD.
I have been using the system for video editing/vfx work using Adobe CC Suite.
I am now moving onto color grading using Davinci Resolve 12.5 as I find color grading in Premiere to be very laggy.
Overall I am really happy with the performance with rendering/exporting from Premiere/After Effects but when installing DR12 it mentioned that my video/graphics card is pretty lousy and best for me to upgrade.
My graphics card is a ATI Firepro V8700 (FireGL).
I don't have a ton of money to spend (perhaps $100) to buy a used card and I was wondering if people could recommend what make/model card might be appropriate.
Some of the cards that are available right now for me to purchase:
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB GDDR5 - $100
ASUS HD 6950 Direct CUII 2GB Graphics Card - $90
GeForce GTX 660 3GB G-SYNC - $100
Any of these worth picking up and/or do you have any recommendations?
Many thanks in advance!

If I had to choose one of those 3 I'd pick the GTX 750
