So the question is, do I go with a currant (PCIe 3.0) mid range GPU now, which PhotoShop can take advantage of, but Lightroom currently can't, but possibly might down the road, and spend $450. Or go with something for $100, and wait?
I'm planing a build using the same X79/ i3930k 6-core package, 32 gigs of DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 quad channel ram.
The card I'm looking at is a AMD FirePro W5000.
AMD FirePro™ W5000 supports DisplayPort 1.2 with a max resolution of 4096x2160, can drive three displays at once, features 2GB GDDR5 memory, a 256-bit memory interface and 102.3 GB/s memory bandwidth.
BTW, for what's it's worth, it does 10 bit color, and I have a NEC PA271W
