Sold my 285gtx and bought a lightning Edition 580gtx, the graphics on computer games are better but I can't see any difference in performance in after effects. I would have expected render times to be speeded up or at least viewing in real time full.

I have:
My after effects is 10.5.0.253
AMD 6 core, 16ram, ssd HD, windows 7 64.

Try using the Ray Tracing engine, you should notice a performance increase there.

ETA: Didn't see that you were using 5.5 until I saw Todd's post, then I slapped my head and said "DOH!!!" real loud.

If you're using After Effects CS5.5, there is no reason to expect any performance improvement because of a GPU. That version didn't use the GPU for much.

See this page for details of what the GPU does in After Effects CS6 and later:

There isn't a card made that will speed up AE the same way the right card will speed up... oh, say, an editing application.

That's because AE and editing applications don't work they same way, they don't do the same things, so they use the cards differently.

Stick with the Good Mr. Cuevas' advice.
