What is the best videocard for photoshop and Illustrator? I am planning to buy a new one.
My Videocard is recently broken I think. Last night there where glimps or misbehavior on my screen then a moment later my PC restarted.

Re: Videocard

More is better!
This is not necessarily true, as I stated it really depends on what your doing, a 1GB Graphics Card would be quite sufficient for general Photoshop editing, in this case the more RAM the better as Photoshop can be quite memory hungry. Another thing to consider is the Scratch Disk and if you are going to upgrade/buy a new Graphics card make sure the PC power supply can handle it!
