Best Video Card Upgrade

PostMon Nov 13, 2017 5:07 am


I was wondering what the best video card upgrade is for a 2010 Westmere Mac Pro Tower to speed up my system so that I can cut BMCC Raw footage. (Premiere and Resolve run so sluggish on my system). People here gave me some great suggestions to upgrade my video card -- At the time (a year or so ago) people were recommending NVIDIA 970 or 980 cards with at least 4GB...

I was wondering -- is the 1070 or 1080 better now that it is released and of comparable price? A 1070 seems to spec better than a 970. I hope to buy the card tomorrow (Monday) and was hoping for any last minute suggestions.

Thank you so much! My new question about the 1070/1080, I think, was way too far down on this old thread I posted when I first started investigating my slow system, here -- viewtopic.php?f=21&t=35279&p=374402#p374402

Thank you so, so much! The knowledge from this forum is invaluable.
