So, I've put off getting a new video card for several years now. Currently still running on a GeForce 7950GT - circa 2006
and while it does its job well, and I really don't game on my system that much, it kinda chugs on just about everything I try out.
I'm currently using this mobo
and was thinking about picking up something with CUDA support for CS5. Wasn't sure if it was worth doing or not. Any suggestions?
EDIT - The benchmarks I've seen make it look like the CUDA support is pretty much worthless with CS5. Anyone care to confirm or refute that?
Also of note - I think I'm skirting the edge of stability with a 500W power supply as it is. The spec pages for this old card suggest a 400W minimum, CPU is supposed to be drawing 125W, and I'm running 5 HDDs and a half-dozen case fans from it as well. Sufficient to say, I'm okay with the need to upgrade power supplies at this point too, as it has had random reboot issues in the past.
