Graphic card for Adobe premiere, after effect, maya


Nov 10, 2011
Hello, I'm building a new system for Adobe premiere, after effect, maya and watching HD movie sometime. I'm not a bigfan of Gaming. I know I should get something like firepro or quardro but I can't afford that. Do you have anything recommend for the price below $200

my system is

i7 2600k
ASUS P8Z68-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Corsair Vengeance 12 GB DDR3
cooler master psu 650w


Select a graphic Card that could easily work with Adobe Mercury Playback Engine( MPE ).

Here is a list for GPUs that work well with MPE:

It is very very useful if you do more with Adobe Premiere. A for example ZOTAC Geforce gtx 570 you can afford for about $320 today but rendering is very faster for your video editing needs. [ GTX 470 also works well about ~120 less than 570 ]

And to be honest ;) you absolutely need at least a SSD drive for Windows/Programs partition.
