I have a early 2009 Mac Pro 4.1 8 core 2.93ghz with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285. Currently have 24gb ram in it I use it mostly for Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects and Premier Pro, most of the time more than one at a time. I don't feel like I'm getting the performance out of it that I should be. There are time when using multiple filters in Lightroom that it gives me the spinning wheel and takes a few seconds to kick in. In After Effects it stalls out often working in 3D space. Would upgrading my video card help with this process or is the only thing I can do is take my ram all the way to 32, which I plan on doing either way. I can't afford the Quadro FX4800 at the moment, but would the Radeon 5870, or any other card, be much of an upgrade? Should I just wait till I can afford the Quadro? Thanks for the help!
