(Photoshop CS4 & 3D) the most important thing was the GPU in the
graphics card, not so much the graphic card's memory as long as it is
more than 256 MB. I'm thinking about buying something like the Asus ATI
EAH 4670 which is about 80 EUR here in my local store. Its GPU is much
faster than the one in my current graphics adapter, plus: The card I
have now has problems with Photoshop CS4 (or the other way 'round) so
Adobe advises anyone using this card to turn the GPU support off... If I
can find a card that is known to work with CS4 without problems, I'll
get one AND more memory.
