    Hi

    I've got a Jan 2008 MP installed with the 2600XT card. I've found an amazing deal on the 1900 XT card and was wondering if it would be any better for my MP?

    I run Maya, Shake, Adobe CS3, Final Cut etc (basically all the content creation apps!)

    how much of a benefit would i see?

    The card is second hand - would that slow it down at all, being "old" and all?

    advice appreciated!

    http://barefeats.com/harper16.html has some benchmarks. Personally I'd keep the 2600XT. There are issues with the 1900XT which you can find if you search this forum that would also make me stay away.
