MAC dual G5 2.5 gig. 4.5 gb RAM. OS 10.3.8
Blackmagic Decklink Extreme card v4.8b
FCP 4.5 production Suite
500GB G-Raid Firewire800
Decks = Beta-SP, DVCpro, DigiBeta.
Audio Mix = Mackie 1604 VLZpro
I believe I have the stock display card

I am thinking of purchasing the ATI RADEON X800XT display card.
I there a difference between the Mac edition, Platinum edition, etc.? Also does this card only take one slot?
Thanks in advance

"At first glance, it appears the X800 XT Mac Edition should give you equal or better performance than GeForce 6800 Ultra for an aftermarket price equal to the GeForce 6800 GT -- plus it only uses one slot. But let's look at real world performance."

Best Wishes,

Well, Ed... I can tell you that my amchine has one in it and it works just awesome. Motion is soooo very responsive and fluid. I couldn't ask for a better card.
