I don’t do any 3D work so I have a 2GB Sapphire Radeon HD 4950 – it’s great, has like 2 mini display ports, HDMI , and 2x DVI .

I’m getting a huge BOXX extreme model only for the purpose of VFX . It’s just insane the amount of resources you need to cope with that.

Hi,

base on my experience, I prefer NVIDIA , I’ve used ATI before and my experience is not that good, maybe because that time their technology is not that established, that was 6 years ago, but I dont have problem with my NVIDIA graphic card right now, works well with my pc unit. Have a nice day

A good article – Best Graphics Cards For The Money: October 2011:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card-gaming-performance,3042.html

Gaming performance pretty much translates in performance in graphical software.
I preffer nVidia too.

ATI all the way !

Massive cards, moreover.. They can cost cheaper than NVIDIA cards. If you want that dual SLI performance. Crossfire is the solution with ATI .

I always worked with ATI , and it NEVER failed :)

@crozer: BOXX !! Wow, congrats ! Huge acquisition :O

Cheers !

I would recommend NVIDIA Geforce GTS series cards. Bit costlier then ATIs.. but very reliable. I’ve one in my PC and it keeps running quietly without any glitches. I use my PC for nearly 14 hours a day, its been 3 years but no problem with the card till now. By the way, you can go for GTX series, check it out.
