    Hi all,

    I'm planning on getting a new desktop PC for use with CS5 Extended.
    (Currently using CS3...but my Pentium 4 PC is seriously ill!!). I'm going to
    go with Windows 7 64bit, I7 CPU and 8Gb ram. I'm getting a headache reading
    info on various sites where some are saying ATI is better, others that
    Nvidia is better. So..assuming either is ok what are the opinions here? The
    computer will also be using Sibelius and Cubase VST software (I'm a music
    teacher)..but I use Photoshop a lot and would like to use its 3D
    capabilities with Open GL etc. I have the list of "tested" cards fom the
    Adobe site...but even some of thes are causing trouble for some users
    according to what I'm reading on forums.

  2. Hi Paul:

    I'm doing much the same as you. I have an older computer that I
    "up-graded" to a Nvidia card a bit ago. It's been my observation that
    it's all in the drivers. I've seen more forums problems with Nvidia
    drivers than any other brand. I've had Nvidia drivers I've had to roll
    back because they "broke" my system. Probably worked just fine for a
    gamer but I don't do games, mostly Photoshop. I would go with the ATI
    card if I was doing it over. By the way I don't think the Adobe video
    card list has been updated in a long time.
