    Out of the four choices at the Apple site when ordering a new G4 1.43 dual, which card is the better choice and why?

    FCP and After Effects are the main software packages to be used on the unit and I don't do gaming.

    If a higher end card is the choice, is it worth the money?

    Also a matter of drivers. With some more test time on the market, it should be _the card_ for the Mac. Until the 9800 comes to the Mac, of course ;)

    The video card will not effect the render speed or quality of FCP or AE. As long as it has good 2D and dual monitor support that's all you need.
