I'm about to connect a third monitor, and wonder what graphic card is appropriate, so I'm trying to update my knowledge a little. I'm not doing 3D or moving image work, and don't care for games. My main Application is Adobe Illustrator, CS3 for the moment, will update to CS5 or 6 if that happens soon enough. I realize the general answer to this question is "don't bother" because "any card is fast enough for 2D". However... Is "any card fast enough for 2D" because... a) ...the video card does not play any role in rendering the vector data, gradients, transparency etc. from Illustrator? or b) ..."typical" Illustrator 2D work is said to be not complex enough to challenge even a low end card these days? Since I do have some images where zooming and panning is far from fluid on my current setup, a 2009 2.93 quad & GT120 and enough RAM. I would like to know: Is the proposition I quoted meant to be understood in an absolute or in a relative way? PS: I also realize this forum does not specialize in Ai, however Ai specific forums tend to be a little backwards, technically, as I am myself.
