I am needing to upgrade my current graphics card to something a fair bit faster.
i do a lot of video editing thru Handbrake, and it works good at the moment thru that program,
but when i do editing through other programs with GUI and when editing out frames , sharpening , colour changes or any other filters, things start to get really slow and just on the frame line display they take minutes to load up while i am in the program, so i think my current graphics card is only 1Gb NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 and could be struggling maybe ??? .
I went to a computer shop and the guy mentioned this card MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Ventus XS 6G OC $449 , but when i got home i looked on there website and they had an almost identical one MSI GTX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC for $369, so $80 cheaper.
Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the 2 and being that my current system is 5 years old , will going for the $369 one be better, and also will 6gb card be overkill or should i look at 4Gb card instead.
cpu graph in task manager seems ok @ 70 - 80 % when encoding, memory graph sits at around 4gb - 5gb out of the 8 Gb i have.
This is a copy of text from a program called speccy which tells everything about PC, while it was encoding i copied this below.

I dont do any gaming at all.
I just want my programs to runs faster without struggling.
when i am encoding i can barely open anything else, opening firefox can take 2 - 5 minutes sometimes, opening folders where i have some files stored can take upto 20 seconds sometimes as well while an encode is encoding.
