I just installed my spanking new GeForce GTX 275 card (PNY brand). An upgrade from my 4 year old GeForce 7900GT.

My comp that I'm currently working on in CS3 renders out 1 minute 20 faster with this new card! Woo-Hoo!

I'm not sure that's even possible. AE can use OpenGL for preview and final rendering, but I've never heard of it providing meaningful speed bumps simply because you can't use "render multiple frames" at the same time as OpenGL final rendering. Therefore, it's almost always a wash or a major speed decrease to do final renders with OpenGL.

Perhaps the old video card was causing some sort of conflict or other issue with his computer's processor, preventing it from being used to it's fullest for AE, and he would have experienced a similar bump in performance if he had merely removed it.

[Brendan Coots] "it's almost always a wash or a major speed decrease to do final renders with OpenGL. "

....not to mention that the folks at Adobe make sure Open GL is off when they render.

For me, that's a BIG clue about what I should do with Open GL.
