Does anyone have any preference for one or the other graphics cards listed below when working with Maya?

I would stay away from ATI cards running maya, they are generally known to be unstable (with most pro apps). Nvdia is the way to go for content creation, unless you buy ATI's pro cards, which are much more expensive, but suppsoedly a little more stable.

Thanks for your help. One more question. I'm planning on upgrading to Maya 2008 and was curious as to which graphics card I should buy? From the looks of it there aren't any cards that pass without limitations.

I just want to make sure I'm purchasing one that will work for my system. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Rob,

I just uncovered myself from finishing a long documentary, and am getting caught up on the listserves I've been ignoring. You may have already upgraded your system.

I have been using Maya 2008 on a 2007 MacPro with the ATI Radeon x1900XT card. The only trouble I've had is not being able to see CVs in high-quality render mode in the viewport. However, I haven't used the hardware buffer render yet, so haven't run across the posted limitations.

Good luck!
Matt Radcliff
