    foregoing the obvious comments on 'load up on ram' and so on for a new Mac Pro I'm planning on getting; is the 2600xt sufficient for photoshop cs4 use? I read around and hear its been geared more towards using gpu processing power and if so would the 8800 card be a 'better' one to get or would the standard 2600xt do fine?

    The 2600 will be more than fine for CS4, even if you were moving around huge resolution images I doubt the 8800GT would make a big difference.

    The 2600xt will be just fine, though I'd imagine (tbh) that PS4 will really appreciate the 8800 if you're doing anything in amazingly high res. I can't seem to find any benchmarks with the 2600xt, it may be too soon.
