I am looking for recommendations on video cards for use on G5.

Cost not a priority, performance is.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I read www.macmall.com is best priced?

Many say there isnt a difference between the nvidia 5200 range vs the Radeon 9800 cards.

Id go for ATI as they just fixed a bad bug and are starting to optimise more.

UNLESS Nvidia releases quadro series for macs.

As it stands mac vid cards are all gaming cards, not CAD cards strictly, I dont like that.

i got screamed at and got treated like a retard on inside mac games when i brought up a FireGL or Quadro. they jumped all over my case saing the FireGLs and Quadros are the came cards as their gameing counterparts, savea few resistors. but on the mac side because there are no high end cards they dont have to cripple the mac cards like they do on a PC.
it eas pretty dumb.
i dont know if i am allowed to post links to other forums but i think this is worth it. i mean i am not the brightest cookie in the box when it comes to computers and all but they made me feel totally dumb...
