Video card for photo work

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Martin Riddle, Aug 14, 2009.

  1. I'm looking for a new video card thats good with working with images.
    Dual monitor support etc...
    I have a GT9400, which doesn't seem to be very good color wise. The
    onboard Intel graphics seemed better.
    Eventually I will get a spider and do color correction.

    But what are you guys using?, out of curiosity. ATI, Nvidia, what mfg?

    Cheers

  2. I was actually looking at the Dell Ultrasharp 24" to replace my samsung
    700ift, The ultrasharp has a Displayport.
    Unfortunately all the video cards that have a displayport, are power
    hungry 48xx stuff. O well.....

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Cheers

  3. Actually the 4890 has ok power dissipation. 45w idle and 120w full 3d
    Some of the earlier radeon and nvidia stuff was much higher.
    My 450w supply should be fine, as it is now with the 60W 9400 GT card.

    Cheers

  4. I'm leaning that route, I just discovered the Nvidia drivers have a bug
    that shows up in Java graphics.

    Cheers
