Returning this card.

When the price seemed too good to be true...it was.

DO NOT BUY PALIT!

I have the 2GB Palit 460 GTX and mine appears to be working fine at the moment. The only thing is because they've moved one of the DVI-I ports to the top it's louder than most other 460 GTXs.

Are you sure about that? I thought it only worked on Quadro (workstation) class GPUs. On the consumer GTX4xx double precision runs at half the rate of the Quadros which for Fermi class hardware is half single precision. On the Quadro and Tesla cards DP runs at half the speed of SP. However on GF100 based Geforce the drivers repeat the double precision instructions giving you half of the performance of the Quadros (1/4 of SP speeds).

The Mercury engine is artificially limited to Quadros. I'm pretty sure it doesn't work on Geforce cards of any generation.

"Accelerated rendering
The Mercury Playback Engine doesn't just deliver blazing performance and a fluid editing experience. By more optimally using your entire system performance, it also accelerates rendering and encoding, reducing the time required to deliver content to your clients. The only thing we can’t help you decide is what to do with all of the free time you'll now have.

Mercury brings performance gains on all of the GPUs supported today in CS5. If you're upgrading your system today and want to get the most out of your configuration, the following graphics cards offer significant additional acceleration by the Mercury Playback Engine:

Quadro FX 3800 (Windows)
Quadro FX 4800 (Windows and Mac OS)
Quadro FX 5800 (Windows)
Quadro CX
Adobe is planning to support additional cards in the future, including some of the new NVIDIA solutions based on the upcoming Fermi parallel computing architecture."

I'm looking at the CS5 page info..it states it there.

The nvidia page you linked to says links to says this:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/adobe_PremiereproCS5.html

If you look in the "upgrade today" section it says:


The following Quadro professional solutions are required to accelerate the new Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5:

> Quadro 5000*
> Quadro 4000*
> Quadro 5000M*
> Quadro FX 5800

> Quadro FX 4800
> Quadro FX 4800 Mac
> Quadro FX 3800


I'm fairly certain you need a Quadro. Nvidia has a nasty habit of milking its customers for everything they can get.

I read before that the previous version of Premiere only supported GPU accelerated encoding on Quadros with the Elemental plugin, so much so that you could get a 'deal' on the Elemental plugin and a Quadro CX (specially designed for photoshop).
