Thank you every one for the input.

1. Performance boost from high end gaming card:

I understand the little/insignificant gain by having a newer and faster consumer grade gaming card for photo editing especially I am currently using LR only. I am still outside the door of video editing but as all my cameras are having video shooting capability I need to use Premiere at some time.

I have been very happy with my nVidia 285+ until I started playing games (Simcity and Deadspace on the 27 incher, pushing all details to maximum)

2. AMD vs nVidia

I have been using AMD for years and years.....it was only this specific nVidia 285+ made me understand the difference between the two. For unknown reason there are always problems with my AMD 4870 card....hiccup and I need to upgrade drivers so frequently.

The driving force to going back AMD is the price and amount of video ram. For 2/3 the price of a nVidia 680 card, I can get one 3Gb 7970 (together with two free games). I can easily hook another 30" Monitor.

Thank you very much.
