    It's not necessary for running EDIUS alone. It's still a hotly debated topic around the globe. There is a list of driver specific settings with each Quadro card that written especially for many programs like Lightwave, Maya, 3dsMax, After Effetcs, AutoCad etc etc a big list.

    Why would anyone buy a Quadro card over a standard Geforce card?

    They are $850 here in australia, compared to $180 for a 8600GT which is a fantastic little card!

    I have been using an ATI X1300 Dual DVI 512 MB card with no problems so far. Vitascene works just fine. I may switch to a Nvidia card because a couple of programs I have are tested with Nvidia.

    What is the best bang for the buck with an affordable Quadro or Geforce card?

    Paul the FX1700 works fine. Though if you are running 32bit XP and have 4 gigs of RAM then you will lose some available memory according to windows.

    Brandon BH, did an indepth post on this subject a while back, you could search for it.

    But Yes, it does work well.

    Yeah Quadro FX 1500 and 3450 both tested with NX and work really well, both single slot cards which is good.

    Quadro cards have always excelled in compatibility and designed to work with many of our software tools specifically. There are lower end Quadro cards that may work fine. There is a Quadro FX370 with 256MB DDR2 and dual DVI-I though only one DVI port is dual link. This is a less than $150. card.

    I will tell ya what, I just ordered one and will try it on an NX build later next week. Can't wait that long? Then order one and give it a go. If it does not work out, return it, that's what I will do!

    As far as hanging on to GPU optimized software. That is all well in an SD world. But things are a changing and HD, IT workflow, Blu-Ray tools and faster CPU's are the future. So, jump on board..................or don't!

    I would recommend a 8800GT just in case you need to use GPU heavy effects like Vitascene in the future...however, Xplode Pro will/might not work with this card, so be wary...Maybe someone can chime in of a recenty ATI card that will work ok with Vitascene and EDIUS and Xplode Pro.
    Yeah Dave, I had the 1950x in the big system and it worked fine with Vitascene and Xplode pro. Not RT, but with buffer prefill it was fine. I replaced it with my FX1500 because of ATI not wanting to play well with others. I have it in the Decklink machine now.

    Why all the luxury?
    Surely Edius doesn't even use the possibilities of such a card?

    Is it really necessary? What do you need Open Gl for with Edius?
    Do you use AE as well as Edius? This is where you will see the difference.

    I have no idea But My 3d graphics and title package love it and edius's overlay is fine with it

    and I got it from ebay for less than my HD3850 SO WHY NOT HAVE IT should be the question from my point of view........

    I see though if you are buying it retail............:-( little point and if you are not doing any other graphics work

    I have two NX systems, one uses a Nvidia 7300GT with 256Mb, the other a 7600 with 512Mb.
    Can't tell the difference between them.

    QUADRO FX 1500 in a system with NXe

    Because Gdame said they were good:-) and they are a tidy single slot card

    and

    A saphire HD3850 512mb 256bit card because it works and it was cheap and its a single slot card and does not cover up any of my other pcie slots.

    Both cards support open GL the Quadro more so
