I have a ATI Radeon HD 5770 running with the latest drivers
with a 3 monitor setup. I have been playing a fair amount of video recently, either with video editing or playing back streaming video.
I've always noticed that I would have times were video would get choppy or playback with alot of artifacts for lack of a better term, where the video screen is not refreshing smoothly. Much of the time when I see this happen, I will still appear to have system resources available, and I suspect I am pushing my video card to the limit. If I run the system with just my video editor open for example, it I would normally get pretty decent playback.
I use Adobe Lightroom and Sony vegas, which I think both use partial GPU assist.
Would I be likely to see a new video card clear up any video playback issues on my system or in any other way speed things up?
