Do I need a New Computer VIdeo Card


My system is Windows Pro 64 with 24 GB of memory 3 hard drives and a 600 watt PSU.
I have an older GeForce GT 740 2gb card that requires a 4 pin extra power form the PSU. When I use n_Track the Task manager shows that the power read is Very High. When I am using maybe 10 tracks when I change zoom levels ojne or more tracks do not draw until I click on them. I use envelopes to do a great deal of the editing on tracks and sometimes a change will cause the program to quite responding. The Plugins have a lot of graphical display of dials and moving patterns.
I see I can get video cards that do not require the extra power plug and draw from the cards plugin and have 4 gb memory…
Opinions - would a new card help?

The processes for plugins and ntrack are CPU dependent not gpu dependent. I would say no this would not help as VST plugins unless otherwise specified are normally not optimized for audio apps. So I would say no to a new video card and yes to a faster CPU. This is not to say the GPU is not involved, it is but I believe the main process are CPU dependent.

Thanks. You’re probably right. but I’m stumped. I have two large monitors and the track wav forms Disappear on a track or two in a random manner.
The task manager goes to read in the disk write as soon a n-Track is opened. I’ve got a AMD 8 core processor runnin at 3.86 . 24 of memory.
To upgrade the CPU I’ll have to buy a new computer.
