    Hi Everyone
    I am planning to get a new IMac and want to get the latest Photoshop to do some photo manipulating and creating artwork.
    My question: would NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB GDDR5 be enough or would I need NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5?

    Thanks

    675mx will be more then enough unless you need the extra Vram. The 680mx is more for gaming.

    Well the upgrade is £120/$150. If you can afford it, then there is a performance increase, especially with the added 1GB of graohics RAM.

    There is big difference in performance according to the benchmarks and testing results,,, i originally had the 675MX and changed to the 680MX as i dont think i will change this machine before 2 to 3 years. Also i have went back to i5 proc from i7, the application which benefits HT is less and this is un-necessary costs.

    HTH.
