Hey everyone,

 

If you wanted the absolute most powerful graphics card and budget was no issue what would you get? Gaming, Pro Video Production etc.

 

Thanks

Gaming cards and professional workstation cards are two different animals in a sense.  Gaming-centric cards value speed over precision, workstation cards value the opposite.  Both can be used for gaming and CAD.  Video production could use a standard gaming graphics card, but if you are doing CAD, you may want to look at the workstation cards.

 

Probably, the best gaming card you could get right now would be a GTX 980 Ti, such as the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR 6GB.  The GeForce Titan X would beat the GTX 980 Ti, albeit slightly with a far higher price.  If you are interested in this card, a good one is the EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN X 12G-P4-2992-KR 12GB SC GAMING.

Having seen a lot of gaming setups, the closest pairing of CPU and GPU is the AMD/ATI (now one company) and INTEL/NVidia.   Those pairings allow for fewer running processes and NO patches that eat up machine cycles and slow frame rates.  Close attention to MOBO buss speeds and GPU clock speeds can help in smoothing CPU-GPU pairings.  Not all CPUs will work well with any specific GPU or card.  Mostly by trial and error and a cutting edge game to tax your rig and reveal any hiccups.

That Titan would be suitable as a workstation card? Titan is crazy!! The only other 12gb card i knew of was the Quadro 6000, which was 3k more. How do you think it stacks up against that. Def has a much better price. Thanks for the replies!!

The Quadro M6000 is nearly identical to the Titan X but changes a few things around for workstation users, especially in the drivers and firmware.  If you aren't planning on gaming, the Quadro card would be the best.  You could go for a Quadro K6000.  The Quadro line is designed for workstation activities, is supported directly by Nvidia, and typically has a long support life cycle, this is why they cost more.

 

You can certainly use the Titan X, but in some use cases, the Quadro M/K6000 should perform better.
