    I've ordered Photoshop CS5 Extended and have received a few quotes for a new old P4 is terminally ill. One quote has the Nvidia GTX 260 Asus
    and the other the GTS 240 Asus. As I need to make sure the card supports
    Open GL2.1 or greater and Shader Model 3 I'm confused as to which one to
    choose. The GTX260 is more expensive but seems to support Open GL2.1...the
    GTS240 supports Open GL3. I've looked at various Nvidia sites/specs but am
    confused about shader model requirements. I will be using the 3D
    capabilities of CS5. Are these cards suitable? Is one much better than the
    other? Is there a better card? many thanks for your help.

    Thanks John, but it wasn't too helpful. I'll be using Windows 7 64 bit.
    There wasn't info as to what specific cards support open GL and shader
    3.0...the links didn't give me the info I need.
