[z1, ditch the FX.... they are really crappy when they compare with the 9700 that has been out for 5-6 months now...
If I were you, I'd get a Quadro at least (maybe the Quadro FX) or a Radeon 9800...
What with the prices 'n' stuff, wouldn't it be better to get an entry level workstation card like the WildCat VP 760??
Curious 'cause I'm looking to upgrade from my crappy 1Ghz, 256MB, ATI Radeon 7200 machine. (it was the schizznit at the time I bought it!))
