Looking at building a new workstation and deciding between the K6000 and K5200. How much difference will the K6000 make (bang for the extra bucks in cost) over the K5200? Any real world examples/experiences to share? I asked about this in the AE forum and the response was that AE won't take advantage of the card so I should worry more about RAM. But will it make a difference in PPro?

Thanks

Can you explain why it's plain and simple?

The 5200 provides much of the same horsepower for less money.

If you have an extra $3000 in the bank you absolutely need to spend then either purchase the K6000 or send the money to me.

The bottom line is, the K5200 is so much more card than your old 4000 that it will amaze you, it's actually more powerful than the old Quadro 6000, but at a fraction of the cost and half the power consumption.

The K6000 will be faster, but if you really need more speed you should consider using one of the less expensive, but more powerful, Titan cards, or even multiples, as both Premiere and AE support multiple cards.
