Premiere cc - GTX 970 vs. AMD R9 390

could you give me a advice wich graphic card i should choose? Im working with Premiere CC and do a lot of grading with the Lumetri tool. My computer has the following setup:

Intel Core i7-2600K Box, LGA1155 
16GB-Kit Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz CL9 
ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Sockel 1155, ATX, DDR3 
be quiet! STRAIGHT POWER BQT E9-500W 80+Gold 
BitFenix Shinobi Midi-Tower 
2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200 2000GB, SATA 6Gb/s 

I read that Adobe now supports openCL in the same way theyre doing with Cuda cores. Is that true? So should i go for the r9 390 with 8gb vor the gtx970 with its 4gb? Im working with h265 files from the Samsung NX1.

Thanks, best regards

GTX 960 4gb version, it has a H265 decoder built into the card.

Yes the gtx970 has it also.

Do you know what graphics card power connectors your computer has? An R9 390 typically requires a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector, which a 500W power supply is unlikely to have. A GTX970 on the other hand will usually be just fine with two 6-pin power connectors.

The "bequiet" website says it has 2 "PCI-E 6+2 pin (GPU)" Cabels


thanks so far but.... i still dont know what to buy. The higher VRam isnt that much important?
