Hi everyone,
I am currently on this machine

Mac Pro 2x2.4 Quad Core Intel Xeon
14 Gig of Rams
ATI Radeon 5770 HD Card

I am running CS 5.5 and will be editing quite a bit RED footage.

Based on my research and some suggestions, here is what I found are good Quadro 4000 or GeForce gtx 285

From installation stand point, how difficult is it. Should i replace or add one?


Any help will be great


Jawad

Are these official Macintosh cards...or video cards for a Windows PC?

Since you currently have a Radeon 5770...why not upgrade to the 5870?
