I have a G4 Dual 867 MDD with 2 gigs of ram. So that I may let my wife have my Dell M70 I need to upgrade my G4. I'm a modeler so the upgrade is primarily for using Maya. The added power wouldn't hurt navigating my Lightroom database either. First of all... are the Sonnet Encore/MDX processor replacements: a) worth the money? b) reliable? c) Also, can you uninstall whatever it installs if it were to bonk out? Now, on to the video card. You should see it.. navigating around a scene in Maya blows my video card up. If I try to render, the SBBoD mockingly bounces up and down in laughter at me. I have one Dell 24 inch monitor and I'm getting another one like it. What I would like is to have a video card with dual DVI outputs that can last me another couple of years until I save up for my next system. Radeon 9800 seems like the winner from what I have read, but I wanted to ask you guys if there are: a) any better (affordable) cards for graphics and 3D modeling work? b) less expensive/equal or better performance/easily flashable pc cards that would work? Thanks everyone!!!
