    So last night my powerbook g4 was stuck on the grey loading screen, only to find out under single user mode I have a disk0s3: I/O error :mad: So anyway I'm buying a new iMac online tonight. My question is, I am picking up the 24inch make 3.06ghz, my main use will be FCE, Shake, CS3 and Maya and XSI under windows. I've heard that the ATI graphics card is preferred when running FC and so forth. What is the preferred when using 3d programs like Maya and running windows and using XSI (3-d program). I'm not doing anything professional, mostly college course projects and such. Thanx everybody!

    FCE and Shake don't play nice together. They don't integrate like FCP just FYI.

    crap I didn't know about that one. What problems come up? I just picked up a used copy of it not too long ago so I haven't even really used it. I am definetly planning on going towards FCP, so I would imagine I could handle fce + shake for now ( depending on the issues of course) thanx for the info though!
