I need to ask the Professional users a question or two... Now, i don't need people saying as many of the other thread seems to go. I'm not seeking advice about a problem - I don't have any! However, when comparing video cards. The current range of Mac Pros come with the Radeon HD 2600 XT as stock, then as a option. Prospective buys are offered the nVidia 8800 GT (presumably, if your a gamer?) and the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600. When i was making my purchase, I made inquiries in the store regarding the best option for my application and their graphic "genus" suggested I go with the 8800. However, now i'm using it and testing it.. I'm not so sure they gave me the best advice possible. The main application I've purchased this new machine for is to run Maya 2008 smoother, get more in-depth with 3D modelling and rendering. Previously, the lengthy rendering times I was getting with the MBP was ridiculously long, occasionally my laptop will be sitting busy for a week or more! Often experiencing temperatures hot enough to make breakfast on - no kidding!! But.. It is a slower machine when you compare it to the MP. Anyway.. For Professional Application such as Maya 2008, which is the best video card for the job? Now, incase your wondering... I don't play games, at all!
