    What's the cheapest and best way to upgrade our Quad-Core Intel Xeon Mac with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 for the purpose of streaming video?

    These cards for Mac are super expensive!! Where is the cheapest place to buy in your opinion?

    You mean like YouTube and Hulu? The streaming videos are not really dependent on GPUs, but have you tried Newegg or eBay for the GT120 yet?

    What type of video are you trying to stream and what inputs do you need? Also, you need to see what your software supports. The BlackMagic cards are always a good way to go providing the software supports it.

    We're streaming Flash to Justin.TV from WireCast.

    Sorry for the confusion but we already have a GT120 and are trying to stream the video live to Justin.TV, not watch it.

    We use Blackmagic Intensity Pros, I was wondering if there was a better display card than the GT120 for performance of the WireCast software. However, I am thinking now that the GT120 is the best, unless someone can suggest a better one.

    Thank you:)
