GTX 580 for lumion and .....

hello,

The best graphics card for Lumion is GTX 580

I would like to know if the graphics card gtx 580 runs well on sketchup (350/450 MB files), Photoshop (150MB to 1GB files) and autocad 2D?

does anyone use this software in addition to lumion.

if I buy the gtx 580 is what I have to take the version 1.5GB or 3GB

Thank you for your answers  ;)

If you want a card that will outperform GTX 580 in AutoCAD: you will pay a lot more and you will have problems in Lumion and other software.

I have 1.5 GB and I did not have any problems yet even for huge scenes.

Ok,

I use autocad for plans and sections.

You use the gtx 580 for sketchup and photoshop?

I use it with a lot of 3D programs but not Sketchup. Photoshop is not a critical program to choose a card for.

Just to add, not SketchUP related, but if you are going to invest in a 580, for the extra $'s it would seem worthwhile getting the 3GB, that way you are better covered for larger scenes and future proofed a little more.

I think take the gtx 580 1.5GB hoping to have less problems with the Quadro 4000.

it seems that there is not much difference between 3GB and 1.5GB.

when lumion accept SLI, I will take a second card.

I will take the N580GTX Twin Frozr II OC (MSI)

You can not go wrong with GTX 580. I replaced an HD 6870 and I am very happy with it (never think about ATI again). Don't forget to check your power supply as nothing makes it shout more than Lumion.
