    Getting a beefier GFX card

    What would you recommend guys?  Have an older K2000 but as I'm doing a lot of UHD it may be good to get a more recent faster one?  Specs are a bit confusing as my K2000 is stillfully approved and listed. 

    Dont want to spend too much for minimal video editing gain (as rigthtly/wrongly I just think these cards provide 2D video and dont computer game light/shade/3D CAD anything).

    Have found a K4000 for a very good price - will I be twice as awsome with that ;)

    Thanks for any advice.

    I would go for the K4200. It's not much more expensive if you look on Ebay and is around 50-60% faster than the K4000 in many tasks.

    I have one on an HP Z series workstation and it works fine with MC and reasonably well with Resolve.

    Look at thses comparisons...

    Great advice Bruno and great comparison link too.  That K4200 is over twices as fast as my K2000 and 256 bit too. Have already made an offer!  Thanks

    New M.2 SSD. New OS install. Fully rebuilt system.  Latest drivers for everything.  New K4200 graphics card installed (sense no difference...) and so I re enable the GPU effects button in the render setting.  First render with this on and I'm back to exactly the same as my old system's issues with K2000 card:
