Video card suggestions
« on: May 13, 2013, 07:49:30 PM »
I have a 1 year old quad core i7 desktop with 16GB of ram and a radeon hd 5700 series GPU. In general computing this machine does great, but when I open a photoscan model a 20-million faces... this thing just jokes and get very unresponsive. Would a newer video card, perhaps a higher end $1000 video card make a large difference? Any recommendation on a new GPU?

I guess my real question is where would I get the most bang for my buck to get a machine that would allow me to work with massive data sets more effectively.. cuz right now I can't do a darn thing.
When things get weird, the weird turn pro.
