    Get yourself a Quadro FX1500 or FX1700 or higher if you want. Repurpose that 8800 for your secondary machine.

    Do a search on the 8800 and save me and you a lot of thread :) LOL

    BTW, that 4GB will be fine and you will only see around 2.5GB.

    conflicting advice??

    Paul
    The hit is with the 1700 and not the 1500. I'm reading 3.5gb of ram out of 4gb within windows on my machine. I don't want to take a further hit. All of the cards mentioned will work with Edius. The issue comes down to price, and ram.
    The 8800gts 512, FX1500, FX1700 are overkill for just use within Edius and Xplode. (But, these 3 cards work better for opengl than the ATI cards.)

    That will more than likely change when we go to the new effects package slated for the next release.

    NO, I don't know what that is.

    As I stated earlier, 256 will work fine for SD and 1440x1080 1.3 but not in full raster 1920x1080 square pixel when using Vitascene. It will also work under Xplode in 1920x1080, albeit very slowly. The only one that I cannot speak for is the FX1700. I have the 8800gts512, ATI 1950x, Sapphire 2600xt 512, Quadro FX1500. Personally, I would have preferred the Quadro 1700, but the ram issue bothered me. The next price point was in the $2000 range.

    I was just merely posting my findings of non-scientific tests among the cards.
    That is all. Nothing more, nothing less.
    The purchase of the video card is a personal choice and far be it from me to influence anyone one way or another.

    Do a search for Brandon's post.

      8800gts can act like quadro

      If you have some computer knowledge you can try RivaTuner v2.2 which is a software mod for your 8800 to open them up like Quadros. (Quadro and GeForce are the same but the quadro have some options checked off)

        It appears to open it up for only 3d max.
