    Is there a big performance difference between the two? I'm looking at systems with the GT120. If performance for Photoshop is decent I might not need the 5770.

    Thanks for any insights.

    The Radeon HD 5770 is by FAR superior to the GT 120. No contest.

    It's sad we still have to deal with the 5770. If you look at the latest offerings, forget about it. These old graphics cards aren't even in the same performance zip code when compared with, say, HD 7970 (a fantastic card which can be seriously overclocked, I own one) or a GTX 690.

    It's pathetic what we have to put up with because of no update.

    I believe the 7970 and GTX 690 are too long to fit in a Mac Pro.

    A GTX 680 can be used.
