Any recommendations? I am thinking of going for the Redeon 9800 pro 128MB.

That's a prettty good card. We give the edge to nVidia based cards at the current ime (Feb '04). They have better OpenGL perfoirmance. Many of todays new NLEs can tap into the graphics card p[ower for additional features and performance.

I use an Nvidia Geforce fx 5900 (128mb edition non-ultra), and it performs great! I use Adobe Premiere Pro and Set Transition/Effects to Highest Quality mode, and within about 5 hours, i had a great looking DVD Quality Video!

One Reason why they choose the Nvidia Cards over ATI is simply because Nvidia Is a better OpenGL card. ATI is currently working very Hard on becoming the Best DirectX9 cards, and excel in this area (though at this point the two companies are extremely close). Nvidia, on the other hand, has spent more time working on The Current use of Graphics overall. Nvidia Cards Beat ATI in OpenGL benchmarks, and Ati Beat Nvidia in Dx9 Benchmarks.

We really cant recommend anything for you yet, without knowing what type of Games you play, What type of editing software you use, and what price range you are willing to spend. For a card that will perform good enough for Doom 3 and have enough power for Adobe Premiere I would Recommend the Evga Geforce FX 5900 (ultra or non) or any ATI Radeon 9800 pro card. Just make sure to check out http://www.pricewatch.com for the best prices, before you shell out extra money. Wink
