    Hi all

    am doing alot of work on final cut studio and am considering upgrading the gfx card in the future,

    do any of the final cut studio components benefit from an upgraded gfx card?

    at the moment i just have the base 2600xt model - was thinking about buying a pc gfx card and flashing the firmware

    Quote from Barefeats: "We consider this incontrovertible evidence that the GeForce 8800 GT is deficient when rendering Core Image effects. This performance deficiency will extend to other Apple pro apps like Final Cut Pro video effects and Aperture functions that invoke Core Image."
