Which GPU should I choose?

Hey, I am in need of a good GPU for around $150 that can handel rendering videos in adobe after effects, Photoshop, gaming, and possibly bitcoin/ litecoin mining. I can't decide between this:


and this:


I basically don't know weather or not CUDA would benefit me that much. Recommendations for other cards are also appreciated.

You say "possibly" mining and if your not sure go with cuda.

do not get 650 ti get a 650 ti BOOST.

i wold go for the Radeon GPU because i think OpenCL is better than cuda because it performs better in more applications than CUDA!And the 7790 did have heat pipes and you do get 2 games ^^

Thanks for the suggestions, I am now between http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130914  and  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121727

For 200 you could get a 7850

Both are great cards, do you want the one with CUDA and Physx? or the one with better mining and more performance?

I guess the problem im having is deciding if Cuda will outperform the radeon card in games and video editing. mining is not a priority for me at the moment.

May i recommend you watch this first.


Basically what it says is that amd cards are terrible and nvidia cards are better.

Cuda is usually considered better for video editing and you can't even run physx on amd cards without some hacking of the drivers.
