Default Radeon 9800 XT Support Maya?

Hey there, does the Radeon 9800 XT Support Maya very well.

Now I'm not looking to buy a Professional Card as of now cause I can't afford it and I'm getting this on a computer and not buying it from a store

I have 3 too choose from w/ the computer

the 9800 XT
the 9800
Geforce Fx 5200

I'm just learning maya so I don't need a pro card as of now but the computer I'm getting will easily support it, I just want to know if the 9800 XT works well w/maya cause I've heard otherwise

the hercules 9800SE AIW does mutate to 9800pro with the Omega catalysts... and then you only have to go putting tick after tick on the radlinker until it gets arround the specs of the XT (some top at a little bit faster speeds some to a little bit slower.... but hey you cant complain about the money/bang ratio )

not that it is the recomended hard anyways...

I have not used ati but according to the many artists from my work, they say ATI has poor openGL implementation compared to nVidia. But from your choices, I would go with the 9800XT
