    Hey everyone. I got the Mac Pro and it was messed up so I sent it back. I've decided to go with a 2.26 8-core Mac Pro from 2009. Anyway, it comes with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 512MB GDDR3 memory but I've heard it's pretty cheap. I was wondering what you guys recommend for a good video card around $200 or so. Thanks.

    For $200 you have only one choice, the 5770, which is absolutely fine for your kind of work.

    A 4870 would be another option if you can find it used. It offers the same performance but requires more power and comes with only 2 outputs.
