Hi guys,

I know this manner of thing is discussed ad infinitum, but everyone's got their own specific setup and needs, so it's worth getting right...right??

I'm running a Mac Pro, using a lot of After effects and Premiere, and am thinking of getting a GFX card to boost performance the following parts of my workflow.

- Raytracing in AE
- Invigorator plugin in AE
- VCP Element plugin in AE
- The Cinema4D functionality when it becomes active in AE
- Cinema 4D itself
- Premiere, though not essential

Oh... and I still need to be able to run a non-thunderbolt apple cinema display, and a straight Asus monitor via an HMDI cable.

Does such a solution exist? Budget cap at around £1300.

Many thanks in advance!

See the benchmark results:

Note how well the GTX 6xx and 5xx cards do in those results.

Ok...found a relevant post from not so long ago that details which cards are supported and which aren't.

So I suppose I should amend my question to...which is best for the stuff I mentioned -the GeForce GTX 285 or the Quadro 4000?

Thanks,

Cool, thanks for that, Todd...

Although having found another of your blog posts...seems that there's only a couple of cards that will work for me anyway?

Any plans to support the GTX 680 Mac Edition when it comes out?
