I just got a new machine with a Radeon X600 video card. My old machine (five years old) has a NVidia Geforce2 MX. Which card is better for Lightwave? I know most people like NVidia over Radeon, but how about the five years in age?

You won't see a big difference in the two. nVidia drivers tend to be more stable, but speed-wise LW relies on the CPU for object manipulation. In Layout this should be better in 9, using more OpenGL.
