Dear Editors,
Not everyone is a full-time gamer that reads Maximum PC. How about a Built It that covers a machine for photo and video editing? After reading a number of photo/video sites, there's still a lot of confusion regarding what video cards are appropriate for this type of build.

Regards,
Scott

Breaking down performance figures at 1920x1200, the GeForce GTX 680 is just ~1% faster than the Radeon HD 7970, while it trails the 7970 GHz Edition by a 7% margin. This doesn’t change at 2560x1600, where the GeForce GTX 680 is 2% slower than the Radeon HD 7970 and 11% slower than the 7970 GHz Edition, making the 7970 the obvious choice.

In a nutshell, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the best $100 - $150 solution, while the Radeon HD 7850 is the best $150-$200 option. Then the GeForce GTX 660 is the best $200 - $250 graphics card, making the GTX 660 Ti the best $250 - $300 option. From $300 - $400 the Radeon HD 7950 Boost is tops and when spending $400 or more the Radeon HD 7970 is the best choice.
