I’m an Adobe CS5 professional to be and i’m currently looking for a new computer systeem with maximum support for the Adobe Creative Suite 5.
On my search i came across this page:
which states that the following graphic cards are Adobe CS5 certified
NVIDIA Quadro and GeForce GPUs are designed
to boost performance of Adobe Creative Suite 5.
The following solutions are certified by Adobe
for use with Premiere Pro CS5:
Quadro FX 5800
Quadro FX 4800
Quadro FX 4800 Mac
Quadro FX 3800
GeForce GTX 285
I’m a student so i don’t have that massive of a budget. I already have 3 professional screens for video editing, so a triple head workstation is a must. Therefore i would pick 2 GeForce GTX 285’s, because i can afford that.
BUT, the same page also says:
NVIDIA QUADRO. BUILT FOR PROFESSIONALS

This is clearly about the Quadro product line.
