Graphics Cards

I am currently using a MacBook Pro Retina and a Mac Pro for my video editing projects. The MacBook Pro Retina comes with Intel Iris Pro graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics. In my Mac Pro, I have used an ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics card and an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT card. I just ordered a new NVIDIA graphics card with more VRAM  and processing power for better GPU rendering. I tried ordering the NVIDIA GT 640 4 GB graphics card, but they were out of stock. MacVidCards upgraded me to a NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti 2 GB graphics card.

Why is having the right graphics card important? It supplies the GPU processing power and memory that drives your editing and rendering projects. If you own a Mac Pro or a Windows tower with an ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics card, you might want to consider upgrading it. The ATI card only has 256MB of VRAM, which is not enough memory to run Final Cut Pro X. My NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT card has 512MB of VRAM, which will run Final Cut Pro X. I wanted the potential faster render times possible by upgrading to a faster graphics card, so I order the NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti graphics card that has 2 GB of VRAM. My render times for some projects are 12 hours or more, so I am hoping that this new card will help speed up rendering times.
