I probably should've asked before buying, but I got a good deal on a brand new PNY Quadro 4 980 XGL card. Now I am eagerly awaiting it's arrival and would like to know if anyone has any good or bad things to say about this card?

I originally was looking for something that would fully support Maya as well as Lightwave and came across the 750 XGL. It was in my price range. The 980 apparently is 8X AGP whereas the 750 is 4X, otherwise they appear fairly similar features. The 980 I found was actually cheaper than th 750, so I jumped on it.

I have the 900 XGL which is the 4X version of that card, it's a decent card. I did have to have it replaced once under waranty, the fan failed and it fried. I'm hoping it was a just a fluke.

The Quadro 980 XGL is a fine card and certainly much better than the 750 - have fun with it! :)
