    GPU for Photoshop

    Anyone know much about gpus and photoshop?

    I am toying between a gtx 550ti a 7700.

    Current photoshop rig is pretty good so no obvious upgrades other than gpu which is currently pants. I know photoshop doesn't use gpu hugely but for certain filter tasks I will get my money back in time saved easily. I don't do any gaming so its just for photoshop. I know I need to look for a card with decent opengl opencl capabilities but I can find benchmarks for low to midrange cards. Looking in the low end of gpus around 50

    Any suggestions or advice?

    6670 has plenty of GPU power for photoshop, comes in around 60.

    Cheers very much

    Tempted with this 550ti for 50 though. Any positives and negs over amd vs nvdia for photoshop? had a look at 6670 and they come in at around 50 also. Or should I actually splurge out a bit more and go with the 7770 for an extra 20 . I like the fact i can get a fanless 6670 though.........decisions decisions

    nVidia cards draw more power, thats really the only downside for photoshopping. But if you dont see it as a downside, go nuts! lol
