just as the subject says, I'd like to know if a more powerful video card would make working with photoshop more efficient. afaik, video cards only had to do with 3d rendering and the speed that photoshop runs at is mostly a function of processor and memory.

the same question also goes for iMovie

That question already has been asked before... search on graphic card; Brad made some good screenshots and description.

No, it would not help significantly.

To actually answer your question, no, a better video card will not help with Photoshop.
